Are you curious about TuxedoOS, the Linux distribution designed for Tuxedo Computers? If you want to test it out without installing it on your computer, you can use VirtualBox to create a virtual machine and run TuxedoOS inside it. Here’s how to do it:
Step 1: Download the TuxedoOS ISO
Go to the Tuxedo Computers website and navigate to the TuxedoOS download page. Choose the version of TuxedoOS you want to download – 32-bit or 64-bit – and click the corresponding download button. The ISO file will start downloading automatically.
Step 2: Install VirtualBox
If you don’t already have VirtualBox installed, you can download it from the official website. Choose the version of VirtualBox that matches your operating system and follow the installation instructions.
Step 3: Create a new virtual machine
Open VirtualBox and click the “New” button to create a new virtual machine. Give your virtual machine a name – for example, “TuxedoOS” – and select “Linux” as the type and “Ubuntu (64-bit)” as the version. Choose how much RAM you want to allocate to the virtual machine (at least 2GB is recommended), and click “Next.”
Step 4: Create a virtual hard disk
Choose “Create a virtual hard disk now” and click “Create.” Select “VDI” as the type of hard disk and choose “Dynamically allocated” for the storage. Choose how much disk space you want to allocate to the virtual machine (at least 20GB is recommended), and click “Create.”
Step 5: Configure the virtual machine settings
Select your virtual machine in VirtualBox and click the “Settings” button. Go to the “Storage” tab and click on the empty CD/DVD drive. Click the “Choose Virtual Optical Disk File” button and browse to the location where you saved the TuxedoOS ISO file. Select the ISO file and click “Open.”
Step 6: Start the virtual machine
Click the “Start” button to start the virtual machine. TuxedoOS should start booting from the ISO file. Follow the prompts to install TuxedoOS, making sure to select “Erase disk and install TuxedoOS” when prompted.
Step 7: Configure TuxedoOS
Once TuxedoOS is installed, you can configure it to your liking. You might want to install additional software, customize the desktop environment, or create user accounts. Explore TuxedoOS and see what it has to offer!
In conclusion, VirtualBox provides an easy and safe way to try out TuxedoOS without affecting your primary operating system. With these steps, you can create a virtual machine and install TuxedoOS in just a few minutes. Enjoy experimenting with TuxedoOS!
