What is Virtual Box

virtual-box
What is the virtual machine?
We can run more than one operating system without installing the OS on the system by using the Virtual Machine, and also we can use some software’s also.
How its work?
It is the kind of software. It creates the environment to run the OS in our system. Using this software we can run Windows, Linux, mac,, etc.
Virtual machine software
There are many virtual machine software available, but two are powerful in my opinion.
VirtualBox
VirtualBox is the one of the virtual machine, it is the open source software available to download free in the oracle website.

VMWare
VMWare is the powerful virtual machine, it is not available for free, but it is powerful than the VirtualBox. In my case virtual box is more than enough to me ;-)
Let’s begin
I will take you into the tutorial how to install the windows xp professional in my VirtualBox software.
Before that you need to know about the virtual box:
· VirtualBox size is around 100mb (apx).
· VirtualBox needs 10 GB free space to run the windows 32bit-10GB -15GB or more to run the 64 bit.
· 32bit operating system running on the system that does not support the 64bit operating system to run in the VirtualBox, you need a 64bit operating system to run the 64bit Operating system in your computer.
· And definitely OS image file or (.iso) file you need for installation.
