Creation of the Physical Machine

Once you have properly installed your imaging software, you can proceed on creating all the physical machines you need.

Using and configuring your imaging software is out of the scope of this guide, so please refer to the official documentation.


You can find some hints and considerations on how to design and create your virtualized environment in the Sandboxing chapter.


For analysis purposes you are recommended to use Windows XP Service Pack 3, but Cuckoo Sandbox also proved to work with Windows 7 with User Access Control disabled.

When creating the physical machine, Cuckoo doesn’t require any specific configuration. You can choose the options that best fit your needs.
