Install Mint6-64 inside XP inside VirtualBox inside Mint6-64

Postby mercier on Tue Feb 10, 2009 3:37 pm

so, i read about mint4win, and it sounded great. it made me want to test it, and since my only windows installation is my xp inside Vb, i decided to give it a try - and here are the results. this is for fun only, but if it helps someone, even better. the only thing i discovered that didn't work was screen resolution, only got options of 800x600 or 640xsomething.

everything else worked including the wireless out of the box.

great job merlwiz. :wink:

You need to install the Guest Additions running your virtualmachine to get higher resolutions.
It's on the menu.
