Windows 11 is now official. You can experience Windows 11 through the beta channel. You can also get the ISO file via the UUP Dump website. Here, we will show you how to install Windows 11 on Virtualbox totally free and without making mistakes. However, it is up to you to choose whether to install Windows 11 on your PC or try it on a virtual machine. We only recommend installing Windows on VirtualBox so as not to compromise the correct functioning of the system in use.
1. Configuration: Windows 11 On VirtualBox
The first step is to download the Windows 11 ISO file.
Once done, you need to download and install VirtualBox on your PC. Then go to the official VirtualBox website, locate the Windows hosts entry and click on it to download the Virtualbox setup.
Once the download is complete, run the setup and complete the installation. After completing these operations, it is finally time to install Windows 11 on Virtualbox.
Start Virtualbox, click on the new button at the top and in the window that opens give a name to the virtual machine (eg. Windows 11), select the type of system (Microsoft Windows), choose Windows 10 64-bit version and finally press the next button.
Right after you need to allocate at least 4GB of RAM and enter the next button. Select the option: “Create a virtual hard drive now” and finally click on the create button.
Then select the VDI (VirtualBox Disk Image) option and click Next. Now, at least 35GB of hard disk space must be allocated for the virtual machine to work properly; finally, click on create.
Once the virtual machine has been configured, select it and click on the start button. Wait a few moments and you will be asked to select your startup disk. To add it, simply click on the folder icon next to the cancel button, locate the Windows 11 .ISO file and select the “open” item to add it as a virtual optical disk. Then press the start button to install Windows 11.
The installation procedure is easy and intuitive, practically the same as Windows 10 but with the difference that in Windows 11, the graphic appearance changes during system customization.
