    This should be asked in a development forum.

    Welcome to the forums :)

    I've moved your thread to a more appropriate forum for your question.

    What? Vistualbox is for creating Virtual machines (windows, linux etc) on your physical machine.

    As you need a Linux environment to build roms, it may be a virtual machine is required but it doesnt create roms.
