I am abit confused here regarding VM's. Do we as users of BOINC need to download and configure VM's or is it automatically done by your wrapper and we do not have to do anything..?

For example, I wish to run ATLAS as well as another LHC program using VM, do I have to do anything else bar selecting in BOINC to run those apps?

You do not need to configure VM's and in fact you must not! Just install VirtualBox and the Extension Pack and each project does the rest.
