 +====== Running MINIX 3 on Parallels ======
 +
 +This page describes the process of installing MINIX 3 on VirtualBox.
 +
 +===== Preliminaries =====
 +
 +Please install [[http://​www.parallels.com|Parallels]]. Parallels binaries can be downloaded from their webpage.
 +
 +===== Virtual Machine Setup =====
 +
 +Before you install Minix 3, you will need to create a new virtual machine configuration. The VM configuration specifies the parameters of your Virtual machine, e.g., how much memory you want the VM to use, how big you want the virtual hard disk to be, etc.
 +
 +In the main screen of Parallels, press the //New VM// button.
 +  - Press //Next// in the Welcoming Screen.
 +  - At the first screen of //New Virtual Machine Wizard//, select //Create a typical VM//.
 +  - Next, for both //Guest OS Type// and //Guest OS Version//, select //Other//.
 +  - For //Virtual Machine Name//, write **MINIX3** (anything would work). Then, press //Finish//.
 +
 +===== Installation =====
 +
 +Assuming you have downloaded and decompressed a MINIX 3 ISO image from the [[http://​www.minix3.org/​download|download page]], you can mount the ISO file:
 +
 +  - Select **CD/DVD ROM 1** on the list on the list //​Resources//​.
 +  - Select the option **Use Image File** and at the **Image File** menu, browse to the .iso image you extracted earlier.
 +  - Press OK.
 +
 +Ok now you are ready to fire-up Minix! Press the green Power On Button on the menu on the right.
 +
 +Then you can follow the [[.:​doinginstallation#​runningsetup|normal installation instructions]].
 +
 +When the installation is over, type 
 +
 +<​code>​
 +shutdown ​
 +</​code>​
 +
 +to exit Minix. When you get the **fd0>** prompt, press the red **Power Off** from the right menu, in order to shutdown the Virtual Machine.
 +
 +===== Booting MINIX 3 =====
 +
 +Now you have installed MINIX 3 on the virtual machine. First thing that needs to be sorted, is that next time you boot, you want to boot from the operating system, and not from the CD image.
 +  - Select **CD/DVD ROM 1** on the list on the list //​Resources//​.
 +  - Select the option **Use real CD/​DVD-ROM**.
 +  - Press OK.
 +
 +Great, now you can boot into the newly installed operating system by press the green **Power On** button on the right menu.
 +
 +===== Post-install Configuration =====
 +
 +You should read [[.:​postinstallation|Post Installation]] for some configuration tips.
