Here's some things I learned installing VirtualBox. It's rather out of date. Please update it if you have something to add.

TI's notes

Here is how TI suggests setting up VirtualBox.

My Notes

  • Download from here.
  • Install as usual. I made no changes on the Custom Setup page. I got the following message some 9 times. I clicked continue.

  • I used 1024M for the memory size. Make sure your host computer has at least 2 times the real RAM as the virtual machine.
