0xBEN’s Introduction

Before you get very far, I would recommend reviewing 0xBEN’s comments regarding System Specifications and Enabling Virtualization in the BIOS.

My Lab’s Hardware Specifications

In case you encounter any unexpected behaviours that differ from my experience:

  • Host OS: Windows 10 Pro, 64-bit
  • Virtualization Software: VMware Workstation Pro
  • Memory: 64 Gigs
  • CPU: Intel i9-10900K
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti

Installing VMware

You can search the internet for some really good guides on how to install VMWare Fusion, Workstation, etc. for your operating system.

I don’t have anything useful to add.
