Parrot OS Installation In VirtualBox

Parrot OS Installation In VirtualBox

Hello Hackers,

Last time we have learned about how to install the Kali Linux on the virtual box but it’s very heavyweight and does not work properly on a low-performance laptop…

But PARROT OS is very lightweight and has very good performance on even low-weight laptops so those who do not have a very good laptop now can install parrot OS.

It has the same tools as your Kali Linux and even the best performance.

Ok then as you have seen the virtual box in my Kali Linux Installation blog you should be now friendly with the virtual box and how its works (it give you a small setup like a mini laptop in your same laptop).

Parrot is also used for Hacking and security purposes since 2013 but it has now been demanded as a low-weight best performance Linux distro…

So first for installation, you need PARROT Os ISO image(file) and virtual box you can download Parrot OS from its official website I suggest you Download the KDE version of parrot OS because it has the best themes and best…

You can download it from here.

Save the ISO file and it takes some time because the file size is big it will take some half one hour as per net speed…

The next step is to run your Virtual box again and click onNEW

After clicking on creating new a new a small window will pop up and there you will see the new OS creating part.

Where the name is written there you should write your OS system name and let the machine folder be default do not touch it.. the type will be “Linux” and the version will be “Debian(32 or 64 bit )” as per your system requirements.

As I have told you earlier it will occupy less RAM even you can run it on 2-3GB RAM so you can select as per your choice…

After pressing NEXT the click onCREATE VIRTUAL DISK and after that select VDI (virtual disk image) and then click on Dynamically Allocatedall things will be default selected doesn’t change it…

Here you can select the storage as per your requirements and parrot OS requires less space…

and finally, click onCREATE

You can see on the above image the Parrot Os is now formed let us go for some settings to change

Go to the storage section and there you need to select the ISO image for Parrot OS which you have been downloaded earlier…

After settings are done in STORAGE the section now go for NETWORK there default selected is NAT(Network Address Translation) you should select Bridge Adapter

NOW it’s done…Its time to setup Parrot OS

Click on the START Button on top and let the machine start…

This interface will start appearing there now the biggest point does you need to install the OS or run LIVE Mode(no need of setup) and Live mode saved data will not be stored it will get deleted once you close the Virtual box

so for those who want to use Live mode for them blog is over here, but for those who want to continue with the installation we will go further

After clicking on install next you need to select theInstall with GTK GUI(Graphical User Interface) and yes here the Mouse will not work you need to work with UP and DOWN Arrow Keys.

OK after you clicked on this the setup install will start

Select Language(as per your requirement).

Select Country (as per your location)

Select Keyboard layouts(American English)

Select Password for root user(as per your choice)

Select Username for your OS(as per your choice)

Choose Password for your Normal user(as per your choice).

Select Guided-Use entire disk

Select (sda) virtual box hard disk

Select all files in one partition

Select Finish partitioning and continue.

Select “NO” and move further.

Select “YES” for changes in the disk.

Select “YES” for Grub install.

Select VBOX Harddisk and it will take some time to install the Parrot environment.

and it’s done with the setup it will take some time to install and you can start using Parrot OS.

Now if you have a small display(Display resolution issue) you can solve it using…

After you have click on the display configuration you can now change your display as per your choice…

You can adjust screen resolution from here and enjoy with Parrot OS…

Now its time to say GOODBYE for now

Happy Hacking!!!
