# How to setup and use pie-external VM
This method allow you to have the PIE's environment in a VM on your computer.
## First step
Install [Virtual Box](https://www.virtualbox.org/).
On linux you can install it with your packet manager (for [Debian](https://wiki.debian.org/VirtualBox) or [ArchLinux](https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/VirtualBox)).
## Second step
Download the VirtualBox appliance from [this address](https://static.cri.epita.fr/cri-vm.ova).
Open VirtualBox and go to `File > Import Appliance` and import the file you just downloaded.

## Fourth step
You can now `Start` your VM again. You can now use the PXE menu as usual to boot `Archlinux` image.
Be careful ! You should log with `epita` user and no password. Your data is in `/home/epita`, this directory is persistent so you will not lose files when rebooting.
