Now you need to specify how much of your laptop's memory the Virtual Machine can use. Please allocate at least 2GB of memory, 3GB or more is better. Click 'Next'.

Here you specify the "hard drive" for this virtual machine. Select "Use an existing virtual hard drive file", and click the small yellow folder icon at the bottom right of the window. A file navigator will pop up, use it to select the "Ubuntu Saucy.vdi" file you copied from the USB drive.

Click "Next" and the wizard will complete. Now you can start the virtual machine and boot Ubuntu!
