In the "Storage" section, you will be able to :
Note that it's possible to recognize emulate virtual hard disks as SSDs (no matter which controller they are connected to).
And to indicate if they can be plugged in and unplugged from the guest OS (as is the case for SCSI hard drives, for example).
In the "Audio" section, you can enable or disable the sound of the virtual machine for input (microphone) and/or output (speaker).
In the "Network" section, you can configure up to 4 network cards and connect them to different types of networks :
Note: A tutorial will appear to explain in detail the different types of network access of VirtualBox.
If necessary, you can activate up to 4 serial ports and choose which COM ports they will be accessible.
By default, the USB controller is enabled and is available in 3 versions :
By default, for Windows 7, the USB controller is set to USB 2.0, because USB 3.0 is not supported by this version of Windows.
For Windows 8, VirtualBox will select version 3.0 by default.
If you connect an USB key or other compatible USB device to your physical PC, you can connect it to the virtual machine via the icons on the right.
Note that if your USB device came with a driver, it will of course also have to be installed in the virtual machine if you connect it via this option.
With VirtualBox, you can easily share folders of your physical PC to make them accessible for reading and/or writing for a particular virtual machine.
Nevertheless, this will be part of another tutorial.
Finally, you can customize the VirtualBox user interface for your virtual machines.
