    I wanted install in VMWARE FUSION WINDOWS 10 PRO VM on my Mac but as I see is big download even for minimal features, if that I want is 40 GB, is it preferred download less features eg 15 GB then add more modules ???

    VM how much HDD and RAM must have at least? Also must enable VT-x/EPT inside the VM...?

    INSIDE Hyper-V Ubuntu 17.04 VM CAN INSTALL VIRTUAL BOX / VAGRANT and run OK other VMs or Appliances Or Not?

  • Yes.

    You could just select the workloads and individual components you need for your project development.
