 +===== How can I start a VM without getting a window? =====
 +
 +First, make sure that the Virtual Box binaries are in your path. This is done by default on Linux, but in Windows, you might have to manually add the installation directory's bin folder to your path.
 +
 +Then, you need to know either your Guest OS name or UUID number. You can find both of these by typing
 +
 +  VBoxManage list vms
 +
 +into a terminal. From there, simply type
 +
 +  VBoxHeadless -s <Guest-OS-Name>
 +
 +or
 +
 +  VBoxHeadless -s <UUID>
 +
 +This launches the VM without attaching its display to a window. Now all you have to do is set this command as a boot-time service that runs in the background, and you'll be set.
