I was able to install version 6 on Windows 7, configure a virtual machine, and start it without any errors. I have not done anything with the virtual machine but power it on.

THANKS !
I got to staring at that dancing banana or whatever it is and hypnotized myself......

Thanks for checking it out.
I need to close a bunch of programs and try my hand at installing it.


>>> One Hour Later: I got the "Enable Intel Virtualization Technology" box checked to Enable in BIOS.
There were two more options that I left un-checked, "Intel VT for I/O" and "Intel Trusted Execution Technology" ; I had no idea about these two and left them disabled.

I got Virtual Box installed and have the "Oracle VM Virtual Box Manager" on the screen (picture of a penguin holding a hammer and looking in a toolbox)
I have no idea where to go from there.

>>> Two more hours later: I downloaded the most recent Linux Mint Cinnamon 9.3.
I created a "Machine" and finally figured out how to load the ISO into the make-believe DVD tray --- the instructions I was following were for a much older version and the "Help" in VirtualBox seemed to skip this important information.
I soldiered on and now I have a Linux screen that says "Install Linux Mint"
I think I will call it a night.

It sounds like you created a new virtual machine and that you are at the installation screen. Just follow through the prompts to install it. If you have any further issues with Linux mint you might want to check out their forum. https://forums.linuxmint.com/

Thanks; I really appreciate your input and help.
It may be just wishful thinking; but, if this Virtual machine business allows me to do pretty much anything I would otherwise be able to do in a dual-boot environment, and me not have to be all the time booting back and forth, this just might prove to be WAY COOL ! ! !
