    Which operating system do I click before installing in virtualbox?


    I have a question to ask anyone about one part before installing Windows 10. In creating a virtualbox you will see three lines with the top to fill in with name " Windows 10 Technical Preview " then second line with type --Microsoft Windows and the last one with version -- I wasn't sure which to pick the right operating system of my laptop. Well I do know that my operating system is Windows 7 Home Premium SP-1 64X but see several youtube videos show with Windows 8.1. Am I click with Windows 7.1 in the line. Is that correct.

    Thank you,

    John

    I'm not familiar with Virtual Box, but with VMware it will recognize what OS you are installing including windows 10. If VB is like VMware,they are asking which version of Windows you are installing. If Windows 10 is not an option, you can usually use Windows 8/8.1, and I would think it would work fine.
