How to make a VM with Virtualbox

So you wanna know how to make a VM? well, here ya go a written tut with a video on how! now, this was made with scammers in mind but will work for any other purpose. For the video just click Here.

What you need:

  1. A computer lol
  2. Virtual box which you can download here just make sure you get the right version for your os: VirtualBox
  3. Now you need an iso for this tutorial ill be using windows XP black edition you can download it here:
    XPBlack, You can also use windows 10 for this tutorial, same steps but windows 10 instead of XP, here is a Windows 10 ISO download: Windows10.

So after you have those two files downloaded you need to install the virtual box software for this tutorial we will use the typical setting so it’s just a matter of clicking install and next until you reach the end screen if you experience any issues leave a comment below.


After you click finish virtual box should start and now you are going to create a new VM by clicking the “new” button


Then you will need to choose the name for this tutorial we will use WindowsXPBlack so we can find it easily later on. For the type put Microsoft Windows and for the version select Windows XP (32-bit) then click next.


Now you need to choose the amount of ram for the virtual system for windows XP I would choose 1gb or 1024 but this depends on your main system if you only have 1gb or ram then I recommend using 512m as the most and so on depending how much ram you have but always have it at the half mark of your system ram so if you have 2gb or ram make it 1gb for the VM.


Now you’re creating the amount of space for your VM select “create virtual hard disk now” and click create. Now for hard disk type select “VDI (VirtualBox Disk Image)”. For the storage on the physical disk select “Dynamically allocated”. Now for the actual space and location, For the location, I recommend the default file location but you can have any location that you choose. for storage, I recommend 50gb for windows XP.


And your done but we still need to add the iso so double click the VM in the column by the name that you chose.


Now it will prompt you for a start up disk just select the iso file for windows XP black edition.


Now click start and the windows XP setup will start from here on you can treat it like a real computer and install windows XP!

and you’re done! If you like the tutorial check out our other post and join our form Here. Be sure to follow my twitter @ScammerRevolts for website, Video and other updates!


Do you have an updated version of this? Do you recommend using a newer operating system? I’m thinking that using XP will make the scammer suspicious.


You can use really any windows version for this just act as if windows xp in the tutorial was windows 10 and everything else should be the same and yes I reccommend a newer os beacuse most scammers don’t like windows xp anymore but I wrote this originnaly in 2016.


are we able to use any windows verson?

Please check previous replies before leabvign a questios as this was already awnsered

I switched PC’s and now i have to reinstall everything but now when i install the OS it shows up with a different icon and is not working.

Thanks so much for this tutorial. I am a beginner as far as busting scammers goes, so I will be utilizing as many tutorials as you have. :grinning:

Hello @ScammerRevolts, thank you for your service.

Question, is it safer to run my VirtualBox on a partition different from my main drive or does it matter?

It does not really matter

I keep trying Windows 7 it will say ISO but when I download it I cannot find the ISO. I have a windows 7 disc but I cannot use it on my laptop, so I don’t know what I am doing wrong, any suggestions would be great.

EDIT: Alright I feel really dumb, I have never used an ISO before and thought it was a zip file so I was unzipping it, I finally noticed it was an ISO and didn’t unzip it now it worked, sorry for wasting anyones time.

does it need to be 32-bit or can i use 64-bit to install it?

1 Like

You can use either but if you do use 32bit, the os you install will also need to be 32bit. On 64bit you can have 32bit and 64bit operating systems installed on the VM.

oh okay thanks for the help!

Is it possible to run windows 10 with virtual box while you have windows 10 installed in your original machine or computer ‘hope’ somebody understands me

1 Like

Yes it’s possible and for this tutorial everything should be the same but instead of a windows 7 ISO you replace it with a windows 10 one.


The reason why am saying all this is because win10 was slow and dispalying some errors like sorry try again oobe local

Yes, you can do that. But it was laggy for me.


@OrangeGroupTech me too it’s laggy so I guess I have to use windows 7 or 8 but it’s quite rear to find iso for windows 7

if you’re in a pinch, Microsoft provides free VMs with Win7-10 pre-installed for testing versions of IE/Edge at Microsoft Edge Developer website - Microsoft Edge Developer prepared for VirtualBox, VMware, and others. login passwords for the OSs are on the download page.

the caveat is that they expire 90 days after first use but even Microsoft recommends setting a snapshot before use so you can roll back to a fresh install and restart the timer
