Install Windows 10 on VMware workstation

First thing you have to do, in my opinion, is to update your VMware workstation. Generally, you should keep it updated all the time.

Please, select version of Windows you want to use (32 bit, 64 bit,…) and download Windows 10 from Microsoft download section. Now you have to setup you virtual machine. Recommendation for Windows 10 is to use at least 2 GB of RAM and 60 GB on your HDD, although this amount of space on HDD is not necessary. I used 25 GB.

First follow the instructions in order to create virtual machine (Slide 1 to 3). Please select Create a New Virtual Machine.
