How To Install Windows 10 on VirtualBox - 6 min read
Windows is a common operating system used by billions of people. And because of that, there are always many vulnerabilities on Windows.
Because in the future I will use, show and exploit a lot of those vulnerabilities, Therefore I think it is necessary to show the setup of Windows in VirtualBox.
For beginners, but also for advanced people who like to watch and discover maybe something new.
“Difference between a virus and windows? Viruses rarely fail.”
We will install a normal Windows machine as a victim because we will be running our attacks against this machine. This is a lot easier than using a normal computer for that. If you make a mistake with this Windows Virtual Machine that is not a problem, because you can always do a new setup or use a snapshot.
Microsoft has released a number of Windows virtual machines that can be downloaded. Here is the download Link
Extract the Windows file
After you download the VirtualMachine, you have to extract the file. This will take a moment because the file is 7.3 GB
After the extract is complete you will see the MSEdge – Win10 .ova file, click on that.
Install the .ova file on VirtualMachine
Make some setting changes
In this example, I choose a different network. Bridged Adaptor and in this case wlan0.
These virtual machines expire after 90 days. Its always recommend setting a snapshot.
The default password to your Windows 10 Virtual Machine (VM) is “Passw0rd!“
