VBox uses vritual disk, which is actually a file. you can move that file to D: and just have to re-configure your VBox to use this file for the HDD. Also if you go for physical install, the GRUB will automatically be configured to handle both Windows & Mint (had seen couple of posts where people had issues with GRUB install part, if you are sceptic, just make sure you know how to install GRUB manually).
rbanavara wrote:By "cut-paste VBox", do you mean entire VBox application? In that case no. There will be some location where your virtual machine files are stored. You need to find that location & move only thise files. As long you wont touch the VBox binaries (under the program files) & virtual machine files are intact some where, you can play around with the location.
