Hi @viveksaxena ,
there are instructions on how to set up balena on virtualbox here https://www.balena.io/blog/no-hardware-use-virtualbox/
I do that quite a lot and it usually works for me.
If you use a development type image you can log into the console as root and inspect the device on the command line.

For a brigded adapter the IP must be supplied by your networks DHCP server or you need to supply a static network manager configuration. I can give you advice on how to do that if you want to follow that approach.
I do notice on my own installations that getting a network address sometimes seems to take a little for vm’s - I notice that on ubuntu vm’s too so it is more likely a problem of virtualbox.
