    We recommend that you have at least 4Gb of RAM otherwise the performance may suffer. Try it and see if you are able to run.


    Hi Vitthal,

    Also please make sure that hardware virtualization is enabled in your bios settings before installing.




    Perfect you to go ahead with a 4 GB else you might have tough time with the VM or virtualbox.
