virtual box dilemma.


Recommended Posts

Greetings forum,

I have decided to download oracle virtualbox and it is sitting in my downloads folder for the time being.

I have never used this program before ever so i am a little apprehensive about using it.

I understand i can download an ISO of any operating system to run in the virtual box.

This is where i am getting a bit stuck with this,Ive seen on a different website that i can download a 500mb iso of ubuntu os.

When i have downloaded this iso is it simply a case of using the downloaded iso to insert into the virtualbox or does it need to be burned on to cds?

500mb seems a lot of data to be burning to cd.

Im very sorry to trouble you with this as im a complete novice with virtualbox.

Could you help me with this dilemma please?


Kind regards. blush.png

No you don't need to burn it to cd.


Here are little run throughs with some screenshots.






Don't worry too much, just go for it.
