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 Windows won’t

   Select Create a Virtual Hard Disk Now and then click Create.

    Disk Image), which is Oracle’s proprietary container format. Please opt for Virtual Hard Disk

    Dynamically Allocated. If you want faster performance, select Fixed Size, and then click

      on Start Configuration.
