How To Install Ubuntu 18.04 and Ubuntu 19.04 64-bit on VirtualBox

VirtualBox is a general-purpose full virtualizer for x86 hardware, targeted at server, desktop and embedded use. In this tutorial, we'll show you how to install and run Ubuntu 18.04 or Ubuntu 19.04 64-bit on a virtual machine running under virtualbox.

The following quick video tutorial will help you to create a virtual machine under virtualbox and then install and run Ubuntu 18.04 or 19.04 64-bit on it.



Prerequisites
You must have latest available version of virtualbox and enough resources in terms of memory, processor and disk space to run virtual machines on your underlying operating system.


Open up VirtualBox and click New as show in image below to start creating a virtual machine.
