Settign up VE on Laptop


I am trying to set up a playground for developing iRules and prepping for a move from Cisco Aces to F5 and I figired VE woudl be a good way to try these.

Now my questions, I have Oracle Virtual Box installed on my Laptop and am lookign to install Big IP 10.2.2 HF3.

Does anyone have any experience using this setup and/or and advice on how to get this up and running.

I have attached a screenshot of my attempt and teh error I am getting.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

I've no experience with Virtual Box (perhaps others have) and I'm sure it's not a supported hypervisor. Could you not use VMWare Workstation?

Also, why would you not want to use v11? v11.3 was released yesterday and is greatly improved VE wise.
I have no experience with VMWare Workstation ut may head down that route if necessary.
As for what I am not going to move to v11, we are currently on 10.2.2 and don't have an pending plans to move to v11 yet so I wanted to have a like for like senario.
I suspect you'll have to, understood RE v10. I'm running v11 on VMW (trial version) and it works fine.

I've heard that 10.2.3 and 11.1.0 and later works well on modern versions of VMware Workstation, VMware Fusion, Hyper-V and Xen.
