6. Tap on the “plus” sign and choose “Create blank image…” and then give the image file a name and size. I will choose “Windows 7” for the name and give it 7,000 MB size because my Windows 7 files contain several different versions of it, yours might be smaller and thus you should reduce your image size to near 4,000 MB and so on. after that simply tap on the true sign at the top right corner of the screen to proceed to the next step.
