Alas, I'm not enough of a power user to troubleshoot your problem, but will confirm I had no trouble installing Cinnamon 18.2 to VirtualBox 5.1.26 in Win10. Had to install guest additions and enable 3D acceleration to get proper rendering, but it booted even without that. Out of curiosity, are you running into the error when booting the live image or after install?

Another thing to try (if you haven't already) is the VBox Forum.
