Iam running on windows 7 Ultimate, 64 Bit, 4GB Ram, this metasploitable is in vmware image, all i needed was to install on virtual box 4.1.1.4, in virtual media manager there is no 'add' option. Therefore you can not create new virtual disks for machines, yeah i download metasploitable from http://updates.metas...ble.zip.torrent , is there any iso available for metasploitable? any options how to convert vmware imge to virtual disk image? please help me.

  • Extract the Metasploitable.zip you downloaded from the torrent.
  • Open VirtualBox
  • Click "New" to start creating a new virtual machine.
  • Next
  • Name - Metasploitable
  • OS - Linux
  • Version - Ubuntu
  • Next
  • Set RAM - Next
  • Use existing hard disk - Browse
  • Browse to your unzipped Metasploitable.zip folder and navigate to the Metasploitable.vmdk and select it
  • Next
  • Create
  • Select Virtual Machine from the list, hit "Start"

You can also go into the Storage option of any VM Settings, and browse for the .vmdk as well. No conversion is needed.

I'd suggest learning more about how the VM software works before jumping into Metasploit.
