Welcome guys.

Here, I'll explain how to install Ubuntu Linux as a guest OS on Debian 9.0 Stretch Linux using VirtualBox.

Here are the specs of the Debian host OS:

command: lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Debian
Description: Debian GNU/Linux 9.0 (stretch)
Release: 9.0
Codename: stretch

Lets go:

1) Install VirtualBox: how to install virtualbox

2) Set up your guest Ubuntu-OS. Launch VirtualBox

a) Click New: the Create Virtual Machine Window Opens
Name: Ubuntu<description here>
Type: Linux
Version: Select either 32-bit / 64-bit

install-ubuntu-virtualbox

b) Click Next: Memory size...use the scrollbar for a memory setting, depending on your available capacity. I usually do 1024MB
Click Next

c) Hard disk = Create a virtual hard disk now

Hard disk file type: Leave at default VDI (virtual box disk image)

install-ubuntu-virtualbox1

click Create

d) The Hard disk file type window option opens(below)

Default option is VDI. Leave as is

Click Next

install-ubuntu-virtualbox2

e) Storage on Physical Hard Disk
Leave at default: Dynamically allocated
click Next

f) File location and size: use the scrollbar to select your Virtual OS HD capacity. 8-10Gb is a good size
Click Create

Up till here, the virtual machine's settings are completed, but we havent installed it.

Head on to download Ubuntu. Here are some links:
