Then it will ask you where to store your VDI image file. So you can either leave this default or if you want to keep this to other drive you can do that too.
Now to do this click on yellow arrow icon then you can store anywhere you want. As I have store this to my project drive in Linux folder which is safe.

So, for virtual box user simply choose erase and click on install now button. Now it should warn you that to create changes to virtual disk. Don’t worry this won’t delete anything on your local drive on your PC as we are testing these over virtual disks. So, stay cool and click on continue.
