Per the 'Debian Installation' wiki page

The answer to your question then, within the context of the target audience
for FreedomBox, seems to be "Yes, you must use a separate device". A
FreedomBox developer might run a virtual machine on top of his existing
Debian machine, but I imagine that is not a supported configuration for
users. Maybe I'm wrong.
