My Linux Mint VB/VM install works for the most part...
...it is just weird having to do a power reset during the last part of the install.

I just wanted it to show a person what it is like before I put it on an older laptop currently running XP.

Hello Kari I have the VB installed but am stuck at point 14 as I follow the insrtuctions but have no way of browsing to the stick I have Ubuntu save on.

I feel I have made a mistake somewhere but where I don't know can you please advise me as to what I have to do. In my pic is where I am stuck.

Just as I know will the VD open up Ubuntu in the same way as a dual boot would give ,me??

ICIT2LOL,

Am I correct in assuming you downloaded the Ubuntu iso file and then went the extra step of turning it into USB installation media? If so, that was unnecessary. You don't need physical installation media, you install directly from the iso.

In your screenshot, unattach "Host Drive D:" and instead "insert" the iso into the virtual CD/DVD drive.

Click the round plus symbol next to "Controller: IDE", then click "Choose disk", and navigate to the iso you downloaded. "OK" your way back out of everything, and you will have effectively loaded the virtual DVD image into your VM's virtual CD/DVD drive.

Now start your virtual machine and it should boot from the iso image. Take it from there to complete the install.

Ok mat I will give it a go as I really would have preferred a dual boot on the drive itself. But will try again as the last dual boot crashed my tester machine and I don't wnat to wreck the current dedicated 7 machine I have running as Iam running out of machines
