Using VirtualBox for discrete LabVIEW installations - Page 4

We won't show all the screenshots here, but the next several dialogs request memory and virtual hard disk sizes. Please note that you probably shouldn't allocate more than 50% of your system's actual RAM to the RAM on the VM. If you plan on running multiple VMs, you'll need to plan accordingly (i.e you are running Windows 7 with 8GB of RAM and want to run 4VMs with 1GB each). The good news is that you can adjust the RAM size later. The bad news is that the disk size is pretty much done during this dialog, and cannot later be changed without reinstallation.

The next several dialogs have to do with the hard disk. For the purpose of this article, please select:

  • Create new hard disk
  • Dynamically expanding storage
  • 20 GB
