I am using Ubuntu 12.04. I want to install Windows 7 on my system from a CD through VirtualBox. I searched the detailed tutorials through google but I did not find one that worked.

So can some one kindly share any detailed tutorial or link which will really help me out.

While VirtualBox is part of Ubuntu, installing Windows (or any other non-Ubuntu OS) on it is probably not really about Ubuntu. So I think we should probably close this question as off-topic. –  Eliah Kagan Sep 13 '12 at 17:01

I am reconsidering my previous position on this question being off-topic. This has generated answers that are much more about VirtualBox (which is part of Ubuntu) than about Windows (which is not). I'd suggest we reopen this. –  Eliah Kagan Oct 28 '12 at 15:29

Go to their website:

Choose the 1st option and click next

Now either choose fixed or dynamically. I prefer dynamical so you can change the size later

Now choose the amount you want to allocate for your harddisk give it a name and click create

Now we need to configure it so Click on settings

Ignore the error and click OK

Now Click on the CD icon on the far right and choose DVD/CD and Click OK

Do not forget to insert your CD

I don't think its necessary to insert the CD. You can click on that green + button on the storage settings and show where the ISO file is. –  mmrs151 May 29 '13 at 22:40
