How do I install Linux Mint 16 on a VirtualBox hosted on Windows 7 (64 bit)?
Posted on 2014-01-02
I am trying to install Linux Mint 16 on a Virtual Box on my Windows 7 machine.
I've run into some installation issues.
Can someone point me to a tutorial that walks me through the installation process?
I've got the latest version of VirtualBox (64 bit)
I've also got the .ISO for linux mint 16 mate 64 bit.
There are a couple of tutorials which are not specific to Mint 16. I followed those, but it does not seem to install correctly.
I run through the wizard:
1) Select Linux -> Linux 2.6/3.x
2) Create the virtual drive
When I go to start the virtual machine (to install the ISO),
the box "reboots", but then does not take me to the home screen from
where I can run the Linux install from.
I looked at the logs and don't see any obvious errors or exceptions occurring.
I've attached what the basic Linux Mint page looks like when I try running.
Any advice/tips would be greatly appreciated.
