Few days back one of my collegues, was trying to install OpenDaylight on 32Bit Virtual Box and couldn’t find all the instructions in one place, so he created step-by-step guide to install a 32Bit virtual box and Opendaylight.
With his permission, sharing it here.
Section A : Installing 32Bit Virtual Box
