IIRC, if you've already created the VM, just start it .. it will prompt you for an installation disk, point it t the mint.iso--
From what I see once you have the VM set up click file then from the drop down menu select "Virtual Media Manager" "ADD" should be one of the optionsGraeme
When you say Oracle VM , you mean Virtual box?Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk 2
If my memory serves me right I think you select "New" then browse to the .iso from there and install Graeme
Open VirtualBox and click on the New button and then Next and then enter a name for your virtual machine.Then select the correct Operating System type and the Version from the respective drop down menus and then Next.Select the amount of memory that will be allocated to the guest OS.Warning Leave a sufficient amount for host OS itselfSelect Create new hard disk and click next, a new wizard will pop up.Follow the guide and select either a Dynamically expanding storage or a Fixed-size storageSelect the initial size of it. Then click on the Finish button.Click on the Next button and then the Finish button.Select your newly created virtual machine in the VirtualBox main interface and then click on Start.The "First Run Wizard" will pop up.Tell VirtualBox which ISO image file is to be used by selecting ISO Image File and use "Virtual Media Manager" to add your ISO image.The virtual machine will now boot from the image and you should proceed with the OS installation.
How do I install it properly in the VM, do I just go through the process of installing as if it was a 'real' install?
Mmm, I'm still failing to understand why anyone would use this in preference to KVM .. ??

KVM does.Not to mention only techie types are aware of KVM --
So.... Youíre saying the one I'm using is one of the two that is the better of the three?
