Laboratory: Installing Windows 7 as a Virtual Machine


Name _________________________

Section __________

Objectives:

In order to set up computers in one of our laboratories for this semester, we must load Windows 7 on
the computer. You will be installing Windows 7 on a virtual machine. Although this may be a repeat of
a laboratory you have previously done, you will install the OS from an .iso file stored on your HDD.

Scoring:

Total score for this laboratory is 100 points. Every blank in the laboratory counts the same number
of points whether it is an answer you provide or an approval you obtain from the instructor. In order
to receive full credit for this laboratory, every blank must be filled in completely and correctly. Each
blank that is not filled in correctly and completely reduces the total score by 5 points.
