          allocation respectively.



How to download Evren ISO file & VirtualBox

    the next step.

    VirtualBox 6.1.26 platform packages based on your Operating system (OS). 




Installing VirtualBox on MacOs

    find the User Manual here, as well as the Uninstall tool.

     developers" after "Click the lock to prevent further changes." Please Allow System software from

     developer "Oracle America, Inc".

Installing Evren on VirtualBox

 

1. Now that you’ve installed VirtualBox on your Mac, you would need to load up our Evren OS on a 

    virtual machine. Open Virtual Box (via the “Applications” folder or via a Spotlight Search).




2. In VirtualBox, click New.




3. You can name our Evren operating system as desired if you type the name of any available OS. 

    You may choose a different Machine Folder to store the VMs. When you’re ready, click Continue.




4. On the following screen, choose how much RAM (the amount of memory) you want to allocate to 

    your VM, and then click Continue. Keep in mind if you set this too high, your Mac won’t have enough 

    memory to run. The default recommendation is 4096 MB, which is enough to run most installers. 

    You can always change this later in Settings.




5. Now, you have to decide the size of the hard disk for your VM, or if you want one at all. Select 

    Create Virtual Hard Disk Now and then click Create.




6. Next, you have to decide which type of hard disk to create. The default is VDI (VirtualBox Disk Image), 

    which is Oracle’s proprietary container format. 




7. On the next screen, if you want a faster setup, select Dynamically Allocated. If you want faster 

    performance, select Fixed Size, and then click Continue.




8. We recommend space allocation of 20 GB for the items below for software and swap space.




9. Now you have successfully installed VirtualBox and Evren VM. Next, you have to set up the 

    Evren OS by configuring the downloaded ISO file on your laptop. Before that, please go to VirtualBox, 

    and click Start.

       the steps below to rectify the issue before proceeding to Step 10.

12. Next, please navigate to Storage and choose Empty under Storage Devices. Next, click on the 

      disc icon on the right and click on Choose a disk file and select the Evren bootable image(.iso) file.




13. Once you have chosen the right Evren.iso file, you shall see the screenshot below.




14. Next, choose the right graphic card (VMSVGA) in the configuration and enable 3D acceleration.

      installation and launch.




16. Click on Start and you will be directed to the page below and click Install Evren to proceed with 

      installation.




Note:  If you are encountering an issue with Secure Boot as image below, please refer to Steps 

          10 -11 before continuing with Evren OS installation on VirtualBox. You may skip to Step 16 

          to proceed with installation shall there be no error message.




17. You will see this screen, now the setup will run unattended, and it will take 30-45 minutes 

      depending on your laptop/PC.
