Very easy! Here's How to Overcome Host-only Adapter Error in VirtualBox

Geekers - VirtualBox is software that is used to virtualize the operating system into the main operating system. By using this software, it allows us to install one or more other operating systems onto our computers or laptops.


In contrast to how dual boot works, virtualization by VirtualBox does not directly affect your hardware. So VirtualBox will virtualize your hardware starting from the virtual CPU, memory, hard drive and so on.



Even so, the operating system installed on VirtualBox is exactly the same as the original starting from the desktop appearance, features and so on.
