What is best way to install VM Server and VM Manager on same HP laptop

Hello,

I am looking for the best way to install the VM Server and VM Manager on same HP laptop (for demo purposes).

I have installed VM Server on the laptop successfully. I go to install (per Oracle Installation docs) the VM Manager on the same machine.
1ST problem - insufficient memory when mount and run VM installer (e.g., DOM 0 set at half gig - changed to max memory 4 GIG) and this
problem goes away - next problem is that the VM Manager says operatiing system is to hold (3.1 redhat version that VM server uses).

I realize that the installation instructions says that VM manager install must have the later operating system installled. (e.g. Linux 6.xx)

How should I install the VM manager and server on same laptop? Is Virtual Box the way to go? Can it be done any other way?


Thank you for your assistance.
