Marthiella Araujo (6 days ago)
I'm using a macbook air, which has no cd drive. I was unable to select the media from windows 10 to install it. I'm stopping at this point. Can anybody help me?
Myown Jody (4 days ago)
Marthiella, it is a "virtual drive" so it isn't a physical drive in your machine. I have the same mackbook as well. Start the video at 8:40 and go from there. When he says windows 10 dvd he just means the .iso file you downloaded earlier. Hope that helps, cheers!

Will all the data go on your mac physically or will it go to the virtual allocated space?Can you change where the data goes with the windows?

Hi, I have a problem in 3:55. After the installation of the VirtualBox it says "Installation Failed". Is this an outdated version? How can I continue the process? Please help, would really appreciate it! :)

mate can you help me with the full screen shit cuz its full screen but everything is so tiny. thank you!
Fri McWilliams (1 month ago)
Thank you so much for the extremely thorough instructions! Especially that last point about ejecting the virtual CD, that would have stumped me for sure. As someone else said, watch at 1.25x or 1.5x speed but if you're like me you'll probably have to go back several times to pick up on what he's actually clicking on each step.

Hi Hubert, awesome video. Do you think you could do another video for 2019, some things have changed. My quick question is I want to run Microsoft office: mainly emails, word and excel (I use a lot of excel). How much memory do I need to allocate? Is there any considerations if you delete Virtualbox (aka allocation of disk space does it automatically get freed on your MAC - weird rumour).

Hi, you reference the cd/dvd drive. is that a "virtual drive" that you put the iso file on? I have the correct iso file already on a USB stick that was loaded on using bootcamp. IS this usb stick necessary at all or can I just load windows from the iso file in my downloads? Thanks,

When I try to load the windows 10 iso file they're greyed out and then when I select all files to select it I get an error saying failed to open disc drive. Is there a fix for this?
flow2k (3 months ago)
Technically, the different partition method (using bootcamp) can still share files with mounts. But I agree, it's not as easy as Virtual Box.

Can you help me install the drivers? I need especially to use USB ports. Unfortunately I cannot use them, I connect my flash drive or my phone, they are seen in macos, but in windows 10 not. I tried using driverpack online, and driverscloud, but no drivers are detected. I am not interested in display or sound drivers, only USB.

If you click the option "I DO NOT HAVE A PRODUCT KEY" won't Windows just keep nagging you every so often to Activate It? and also won't it have limited functionality until you do activate it with a valid product key? :)

"Select the driver to install" no drivers in the virtual pc
Joshua Sustache (5 months ago)
Hello!! I did the whole process but when I click to "install windows" it automatically says" A media driver your computer needs is missing. This could be a DVD, USB or Hard Disk driver. If you have a CD, DVD, or USB flash drive with the driver on it, please insert it now. Note: if the installation media for windows is in the DVD driver or a USB driver, you can safely remove it for this step. Does anyone know how to answer this??? My MAC is a newer version and doesn't have an input systems for DVD/CD (don't know if that matters). HELP!!!

this worked for me! i was trying to use bootcamp before but it got complicated very quickly because i have an unsupported macbook pro from early 2011. ultimately, bootcamp didnt work and didnt let me install the windows OS. so instead i used this tutorial and it works for me! now i have windows 10 fully installed. thank you very much! :D

Thanks for the great vid. You just got a new sub ;-) But what about the Windows license key? Not necessary? How to run updates etc. without the key?
Micky Baeza (6 months ago)
If you are getting the "FATAL: No bootable medium found! System halted." message, you need to: 1. Click Settings on your Windows 10 option in VirtualBox. 2. Go to the System section. 3. In the Boot Order section, move Optical to the top of the list and make sure it is selected. 4. Click OK and the start your Windows 10 again. Hopefully this helps!

Hi Hubert, Hope you are doing great. I have gone through your youtube video "How to install Windows 10 on a Mac (using VirtualBox)" on yesterday. Then I tried to do the same in my MAC. But while I was trying to install the VirtualBox in my MAC, I encountered the error at the end of the installation as "The installation failed" and have been advised to contact the software manufacturer for assistance. I don't see any placeholder to attach my screenshot here, otherwise I could have done so. Can you please help me to resolve the issue ASAP ? Thanks & Regards - Debasish (Debasish Hazra)
