Guide to Installing BackTrack 5 R3 in VMWare

In this tutorial I am going to show you how to install BackTrack 5 R3 in a virtual machine. This is really simple if you have very basic knowledge about virtual machines. So, let us get started.

What You’ll Need

You will require simply two things; BackTrack OS and VMware Player.

BackTrack OS:

You can download these OS from here.

  1. Just go the link and click Download
  2. In Select Require Version select BackTrack 5 R3
  3. In Window Manager I prefer to select GNOME (it looks clean and nice) but you can select KDE (the flavors of Backtrack)
  4. In Architecture Choose 32 for a 32-bit architecture etc.
  5. In Image Type select ISO
  6. Select your preferred download type. Usually I use Torrent.

VMWare Player

Although there are other virtual machines, I recommend VMware Player which is free and is compatible with Windows. There is also a paid version of VMware known as VMware Workstation which has extra features. But everything we need is available in VMware Player. The process is almost same in either version.

To Download VMware Player go to this link.

If they ask you to register to download the software, do it as its free. After you have downloaded the software double click it and install it . Click next, next, etc. and the installation will be complete.
