  • Click Next
  • On the “Specify memory and networking options” page, put 2,560 for the amount of RAM. Do not exceed the maximum amount RAM listed as supported by your computer. Lower the amount if necessary. However, using less than 1,536 MB of RAM might make the virtual machine perform slowly. See Fig: 4
  • Remove the check next to “Use computer network connections”. See Fig:4

  • Optionally, check the “Enable Undo Disks” option (recommended). See Fig: 5
  • Click Create to finish the process. See Fig: 5
