So in this article, I will write how to install Ubuntu 18.04 in a virtual machine with the virtual box or I give this name –Install Virtualbox Ubuntu.

Personally, I used a Linux system, and also ubuntu system, so I will discuss it here. you can also install another operating system whatever you want. For the virtual box I usedVirtualBox 5.2,also you can install the latest version of the time when you want to install it.

If you want to install your virtual box with Ubuntu, follow this article step by step.

VirtualBox download and Installation:

  1. Download and install Virtual Box on your laptop. Go to the official website of Oracle VM VirtualBox extension and get that.
  2. At first, you have to choose the OS which you want to install or you want to work.
  3. Download the primary OS from their website. You will have the option to select 32-bit or 64-bit. If your computer is new, go ahead and select the 64-bit version but your computer has some age but try the 32-bit version.
  4. Open the virtual box and click “New” at the top left of the menu.install virtualbox ubuntu
  5. Enter the name for your new operating system and select the type. Since the primary OS is Linux and more specifically, a derivative of Ubuntu, I have selected 64-bit versions of Linux and Ubuntu.install virtualbox ubuntu
  6. Select the memory size of your new virtual machine. This will be the amount of RAM your new virtual machine will use. You need to have at least 512 MB, but the recommendation to add it to your laptop is of extra memory in mind. If you allocate too much, the virtual machine will steal your host from your system and affect your laptop’s functionality too far.install virtualbox ubuntu
  7. Select a virtual hard drive so that you can go to your new operating system.install virtualbox ubuntu

  9. You can now choose to have a fixed size or dynamic assignment. A certain size hard drive will work as a regular hard drive. When you finish the space, you are out of space. However, a dynamically-sized hard drive will increase with you as you need it. It will allow for more speed as we choose dynamic.install virtualbox ubuntu
  10. Set your hard drive size. If you choose dynamic, keep in mind that it will increase and resize to suit your needs. If you use a specific drive, you need to set it to large enough to make sure that your files have plenty of room.install virtualbox ubuntu
