The best advice I can give is to just go for it

If it doesn't work you can always delete the disk and try another avenue.

Virtualbox is a great application. Seems very user friendly and has worked quite well for me in the past.

I administered an IBM VM installation for 15 years so I know how useful and flexible they are.
