Windows 10 Virtual Box
Windows 10 Virtual Box

2. Then choose the amount of RAM you would like to use, I suggest atleast 2GB.

3. Then choose the sort of hard disk you would like to recreate. I recommend the default option. (choose a vhi harddisk type)

4.  Just follow the steps on the screen. Then when you’re done click on Settings


5. Make sure the settings meet the settings below
