How to install VM Virtual Box

Step 1 Download and Install VMbox: Go to good ole’ Google and type vmbox. Your looking for the link from Oracle, or you can click here.

Go to Downloads and click that the link that best fits your system. For my install I am using windows 7. Then INSTALL to your system.

Step 2 Checking to see if Virtualization is enabled: To see if virtualization is enabled in you BIOS. Open up VMbox.
In the right hand corner click on new.

You should see as default windows xp (64bit). If you click and only see 32bit versions for all os that may mean that virtualization
isn’t enabled.
Note: that if you are running a 64bit machine it should be 64 bit.

This will require you to go into your BIOS by restarting you computer and and pressing esc key for most systems. To get into your BIOS menu and find
Virtualization and enable it.
Reboot your system and repeat step two to see if it has corrected the issue.
