Get a Windows VM with Vagrant¶
In this lab you’ll use Vagrant to get a Windows 10 VM. This lab is an alternative to installing Windows 10 from scratch and uses Vagrant to automate the process. You should have installed Vagrant already. If you have not, follow the instructions in Install Vagrant
This lab is experimental! I will correct any problems as they arise.
Step 1: Start PowerShell¶
Start PowerShell and use it to create a new directory.
$ mkdir cis194 $ cd cis194
Step 2: Download the Vagrantfile¶
Vagrant uses instructions in a file named
Vagrantfile. The instructions include where to find a box, which is a prepackaged VM and how to configure Virtualbox. You must put
Vagrantfile in its own directory.
wget commandlet to download the Vagrantfile.
$ wget http://www.lifealgorithmic.com/_static/cis-194/Vagrantfile -O Vagrantfile
Step 3: Create the VM¶
In the directory with your
Vagrantfile use the following command to start your VM:
$ vagrant up
This will download 10G of data and may take a while. Once the download is complete the VM will start running.
Turn in a screenshot of your VM running.
