Installation of VirtualBox in Windows 10
First of all we will download VirtualBox from here and install it on our windows machine which is quite easy to do. After doing this, then double click on it and boot.
We need to install the VirtualBox application, so we will proceed by ignoring everything.
Give administrative permission to this software by click “Yes“.
Wait 😛 !! We have to wait for a minute until it writes the system registry values.
Now here we have to give the name of the operating system that we are going to install.
Select the memory size according to your laptop configuration and availability.
Here we need to select the option second to create a virtual disk.
Now we choose “dynamically allocated” option and proceed to the next.
Similarly you can give disk space to the kali linux operating system according to the availability.
If you have made some mistake during configuration or want to modify then you can do it by going to settings section.

Choose the time zone according to your country.
You do not need to change anything, just choose the first option and move on to the next.
Select the first option again and proceed to the next.
Disk space partitioning is complete. Now click “Continue” and proceed.
We want to change the partition of disk space, so we will click “Yes” and proceed.
We will only install software that is previously selected by default, hence do not change anything and click on “continue“.
Warn 🙁 !! It may take longer in your case. Now we will click on “yes” in order to install GURB boot loader.
