Are you excited to try out the latest iteration of Windows but hesitant to install it on your physical machine? Fear not! In this blog post, we will guide you through the process of installing Windows 11 in VirtualBox – a virtualization software that allows you to run multiple operating systems simultaneously without interfering with your main OS. Get ready to experience all the new features and improvements of Windows 11 without risking any damage to your computer!
Download the Windows 11 ISO file
If you want to install Windows in VirtualBox, you will need to download the Windows 11 ISO file. You can do this by visiting the Microsoft website and downloading the ISO file from there.
Once you have downloaded the ISO file, you will need to open VirtualBox and create a new virtual machine. When prompted, choose the option to install Windows from an ISO file and select the ISO file that you downloaded. Follow the prompts to complete the installation and then boot into your new virtual machine.
Install the Oracle VM Virtual Box
1. Oracle VM VirtualBox is a cross-platform virtualization software that allows you to run multiple guest operating systems on a single host machine. In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Windows in VirtualBox.
2. Before we get started, there are a few things you need to have:
– A physical computer with an Intel or AMD processor that supports virtualization technologies
– At least 4GB of RAM (8GB recommended)
– Enough disk space for your virtual machine (we recommend at least 30GB)
– A copy of the Windows installation media (ISO file)
3. Once you have all of the prerequisites, you can proceed with the installation. Start by launching VirtualBox and clicking on the “New” button.
4. On the next screen, enter a name for your virtual machine and select the type and version of operating system you want to install. In this example, we will be installing Windows 10 Pro 64-bit edition.
5. Next, allocate some memory for your virtual machine. We recommend at least 2048MB (2GB).
Create a New Virtual Machine for Windows 11
Assuming you have Windows 10 installed and working properly, the first thing you’ll need to do is download and install VirtualBox. Once that’s done, fire it up and click the “New” button in the top-left corner. You’ll be asked to give your new virtual machine a name; anything will do, so go ahead and name it “Windows 11.”
Next, you’ll need to select the type of operating system you want to install. Since we’re installing Windows, choose “Microsoft Windows” from the drop-down menu and then select the version of Windows you want to install. In this case, we’ll be installing Windows 11, so choose that option.
After that, you’ll need to allocate some RAM to your new virtual machine. The recommended amount is 2GB, but you can get away with 1GB if you’re tight on resources. Once that’s set, click the “Create” button.
Now that your new virtual machine has been created, it’s time to actually install Windows on it. To do that, simply click the “Start” button in VirtualBox and then follow the prompts to insert your Windows installation media (a DVD or USB drive) and begin the installation process. Once that’s done, simply follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation process.
Install Windows 11 in Virtual Box
If you’re a Mac user, you can use VirtualBox to install Windows 11 and run it within macOS. This can be useful for testing purposes or if you need to run Windows-only software that isn’t available for the Mac. Here’s how to set it up:
1. Download and install VirtualBox from here.
2. Launch the app and click on the “New” button in the top-left corner.
3. Enter a name for your virtual machine and select “Windows 11” as the operating system type. Then click on the “Next” button.
4. Allocate at least 2GB of RAM for your VM (4GB or more is better). Then click on the “Next” button.
5. Select “Create a virtual hard disk now” and click on the “Create” button.
6. Choose “VDI (VirtualBox Disk Image)” as the file type and select “Dynamically allocated” as the storage method. Then click on the “Create” button.
7 Now that your new VM has been created, select it from the list and click on the “Start” button in the top-left corner of the window.
8. In the window that appears, choose your Windows 11 ISO file and click on the “Open” button. 9 If prompted, select whether you want to install drivers for any of your host’s physical devices and then click on the ”
Overall, installing Windows in VirtualBox is a pretty straightforward process. However, there are a few things to keep in mind. Make sure you have enough disk space and RAM for your virtual machine. You’ll also need to create a virtual hard disk for your Windows installation.
Once you have everything set up, the installation process is pretty much the same as if you were installing Windows on a physical machine. Just follow the prompts and you should be up and running in no time.
