My host OS is Win7 Ultimate x64. The Mint version that I'm using is 32bit. The schools computers are old P4s that I have to use so I wanted to work with the 32 bit version at home to avoid any problems with that might occur with using different installs.

I got Mint installed with all the packages I wanted then I was able to create a CD using APTonCD. I burned it with K3b and then tested it. Worked perfectly. I wanted to download all the packages at home and then bring them with me to class because the bandwidth gets devoured by the rest of the students trying to update their systems or checking their facebook page! It will be much easier for me to install all my packages from the CD. I noticed that a couple of other guys using mint seemed to have problems updating as well. I'll let them use my CD if they want.

Strange, RHEL 5.5 and 6.0, Debian 6.0, LMDE all 64 bit seem to work as expected when installed as guest. Where did you get your information that 64 bit guest OS isn't supported? As far as I know it all just comes down to the fact that your processor it or not.

Kind regards,
