How to Install ParrotSec OS in Virtualbox step by step
Step 1: Downloading and installing VirtualBox
Head over to the Oracle VirtualBox Website and download the newest version of VirtualBox.
Install it after you downloaded it, leaving everything on default.
Step 2: Downloading ParrotSec OS
Download the Parrot Security Distribution. Choose either 32 or 64 bit according to your System Architecture.
Once you have VirtualBox installed and downloaded the ParrotSec ISO file, we can go ahead and create our Virtual Machine.
Step 3: Creating the ParrotSec VM
Alright, open VirtualBox and click on New to create a new VM.
Enter a Name, as System choose Linux and Other Linux 64bit or 32bit according to your architecture.
Creating a new VM
Next, we are going to allocate memory. I have plenty so I give it 4096 MB. Adjust according to your system memory. Allocating around 25-50% is fine.
Now we create our Virtual Hard Drive. Choose to Create a virtual hard disk now.
Creating a Virtual Hard Disk
Leave the format on VDI for VirtualBox Disk Image.
Next, choose Dynamically allocated.
This means, that if you choose let’s say a Hard Disk Size of 20GB, it will only take up space it’s actually using, not the full 20 GB. It fills up space over time to a maximum of 20 GB.
Choose Dynamically Allocated
Next, we are going to choose a location where to save our .VDI file.
Choose a location that suits you best. Preferably an SSD drive.
Click on the little folder on the right side to choose a location, then adjust the Disk Size.
I’ll give it 25GB so it has some room to grow (Wordlists etc.)
Adjusting the VDI location and size
Now go ahead and start your VM. You will get asked to provide the path to the ParrotSec.ISO file you downloaded earlier.
Click on the folder and specify the file location, most likely C:\Users\YourUserName\Downloads.
Starting the V
Step 4: Installing ParrotSec
Alright, time to run through the installation process.
In the first Window that comes up choose Install.
Next, choose the Standard Installer. Optional you can choose the GTK GUI installer. I like old school, so I don’t.
Choose the Standard Installer
Now we are going through the tedious process of choosing Languages, Locales and Keyboard layouts. I said step-by-step, so we do step-by-step
If you are familiar with those settings, just skip through, same same but different.
Select your System Language
Select your Location next.
Select your Location
…And select your Locales. If you don’t know what to choose here, just leave it at U S A.
Choosing a Locale
Trust me, we are almost there. Choose a Keymap to use for the installation. It doesn’t really matter, you have to choose it again once the System boots up anyway, don’t know why but it is what it is.
Choosing a Keyboard Layout
Now set your ROOT password. This is your most important Password, if you are a Windows guy, this is your Administrator Password. Choose wisely.
Choosing a Root Password
Next, we are creating a User Account for non-Administrative activities. It’s great that this is automatically done in Parrot, in Kali you would need to do this manually. Choose a Username. Don’t use my Username.
Creating a Non-root User
Did I already say we are almost there? It was a lie. Now we are almost there.
For Partitioning Method choose: Guided – Use Entire Disk.
Choosing a Partitioning Method
Select your Virtual Hard Disk.
Choosing your VBOX Hard Disk
Now we are choosing a Partitioning File. Leave it on All Files in one partition, except you know what you are doing.
Choosing a Partitioning Scheme
Select Finish partitioning and write changes to disk and confirm the following Warning with yes.
Writing changes to Disk
Writing changes to Disk
Confirm that you want to install the Grub Bootloader on the Master boot Record.
Now choose your VBOX Hard Disk.
Choosing the Hard Disk
Now wait for the installation to finish, it takes around 10 Minutes.
Confirm with Continue to reboot the system.
Congratulations! Initial Installation done!
