In this first tutorial, I‘ll show you how I configure a virtual machine with VirtualBox to install Debain 8.1.
To install VirtualBox => https://www.virtualbox.org/
To download the ISO file of your choice Debain here => https://www.debian.org/distrib/
I advise the image “netinst” for 64-bit PC.
Creation of the new Virtual Machine
After starting the application you should have the following window in front of you :
Click the “New” button, give it a name and select the type “Linux” and the version “Debian” corresponding to your ISO file. Afterwards click “Next”.
Adjust the memory size to 1024MB, click “Next”.
Choose to create a virtual hard disk for our new installation. Click “Create”.
Choose the default format of VDI virtualbox. You can choose a different format that would be compatible with other virtualization solutions. Other formats are useless for now, we will not transfer our virtual machine. Click “Next”.
