Set the operating system and usage of VMware usage

How to use the additional functions (transfer to tools and files) after installation and setup of VMware usage.

If you need to download and install VMware Workstation 15 player, see the link below.

How to use VMware before operating system installation, use the basic preparation - VMware to install the operating system, which basically requires ISO image files. Setting up any operating system is also applicable. This article describes the setting of windows 10 Pro operating system as the standard. If you use another image file, you can use it to do the same. If you need the windows 10 ISO image file used in this article, see link 7 below.

VMware usage operating system (OS) setup method

Officially start VMware installation If you have the ISO image file installed, now use VMware Workstation 15 player to install the operating system.

1. The first to run VMware Workstation 15 player, click on "create a new virtual machine".

2. Next, you should put the ISO image file on the virtual machine disk. If the new virtual machine wizard is running, you must put in the ISO image file to be installed in "installer disc image file (ISO):". Click "Brown..." to select the prepared ISO image file.

3. The image file added to the virtual machine disk will be displayed on the location (path), and "virtual machine name" will be specified after confirmation. As shown in the figure above, please name the player and click "next" to continue.

4. You must specify the disk capacity of the virtual machine. Specify 20GB, and view it in the store virtual disk as a single file and click "next". (depending on the usage, the setting values are different, please refer to the following instructions for setting.)

Store virtual disk as a single file: check this if you want to generate a file from the virtual machine. (check this if the hard disk of the computer you are using is in NTFS format. I don't know what it means. The probability of using NTFS format is high, and the performance of single disk is higher.)

Check this if you want to split virtual disk into multiple files: to split virtual disk files into 2GB multiple files. If you want to split your disk into another computer, but if you use a large disk, performance may decline. (it is recommended that you use fat 32 format in your host hard disk.)

Maximum disk size (GB): the recommendation for 1064 bit windows is 60GB, but in fact, if it's not for the lack of disk capacity on the host PC, or the PC hardware specification is low, or it's not for the purpose of game, only 20-50gb is needed. If the capacity is surplus, 60GB is recommended.

5. If you have finished setting up your hard disk, you need to click Customize hardware... To define your PC hardware. Power on this virtual machine after creation is to ask whether to run immediately after the virtual machine is generated, just check.

6. You need to set up the hardware according to the purpose of the virtual machine. It is not necessary to set the same setting according to the author's setting. Read the additional instructions and then set the value.

First, click memory from the left to set the memory. The recommended memory for windows 10 virtual machine installation is 2GB (2048 MB), and the minimum recommended memory is 1GB (1024 MB). I specified 4GB (4096mb). If you want to run the smallest operating system flexibly, 2GB (2048 MB) is recommended.

7. The number of cores for processors is specified below. In the case of the number of cores, most of the two are recommended. Excessive cores will reduce the host performance, please note.

The following is a description of virtualization engine settings.

Virtulize Intel VT-x / EPT or amp-v / RVI: assume that when the CPU supports the virtual browser in the virtualization engine, the option with the enforcement mode of Intel VT-x / EPT or amp-v / RVI is simply the virtualization performance improvement technology supported by the CPU. The author confirms through activation and support. The activation confirmation method can refer to the following article for confirmation.

Confirm virtualization support before downloading and installing

Virtualize CPU performance contents: enable this option when you want to perform advanced debugging or performance monitoring. Generally, inspection is not recommended.

Virtualize IOMMU (IO memory mapping unit): with memory and DMA packing technology, and the binary virtualization technology of amod and Intel chips, virtual addition of four devices will accelerate hardware. It cannot be used without the support of madeward. The author did not confirm.

8. Here are the network content settings. Just use the bridge to confirm the connection

Bridged: select this option if the host system is connected to the network and has the IP address of the virtual system (or the IP address can be obtained by the DHCP server). Then the network host can directly communicate with the virtual system. Absrtact: simply regard the network of host PC and guest PC as the physical composition.

Nat: using NAT connection, virtual system and host system share a single network ID that is not visible outside the network.

Host only: using the host private network, the virtual system only communicates with the host system and other virtual systems of the host private network.

9. Display settings. Check "accelerate 3D graphics" under 3D graphics and set it to 1GB ~ 2GB (1GB recommended).

Graphics memory: Specifies the amount of video card memory to be allocated to the guest PC.

After setting, click close at the lower end to proceed to the next step.

10. As shown in the figure above, please confirm whether the user-defined hardware settings conform to your settings, and click "Finish" to start to generate the virtual machine.

VMware usage (Windows 10 Pro) installation method

After all the settings are completed, click Finish to officially enter the operating system (Windows 10 Pro) installation phase. As a reference, when installing the operating system, you can simply follow the instructions, but for beginners, only some parts that you may not know are provided. Don't panic because the photo is not there. According to the screen prompt, yes, as long as you agree. Follow the instructions below to set up how to use VMware.
