Linux MINT Cinnamon and MATE and VMWARE help


I have Mint Mate and Cinnamon and I try to boot them up on VMWare but It just goes through the first 10 second boot up screen and freezes. These two distros are a x64 version but VMWare gives the option for 32bit versions of the OS. I was wondering if this was the problem. How should I configure the settings so the OS boots up?

d9esco,

I think that you may have better luck using VirtualBox instead.

VMware:

d9esco,

VMware and VirtualBox are similar but they are different.

Another poster is having similar problems installing Linux Mint on VB here:
