You are trying to create a 64-bit guest OS.

Do you have a 64-bit processor?

If the answer to this question is "No" then you cannot create a 64-bit guest; you will have to use a 32-bit guest.

Are you running Virtual Box on 32-bit Windows?

If the answer to both questions is "Yes", then you need to explicity configure the VM for a 64-bit guest OS (or else use a 32-bit guest). Have a look at this article for further details.

If your main OS is 32-bit I would opt for a 32-bit guest as that is more efficient than 64-bit emulation.

I'm not sure what your VM problem is. It should just work.

Anyway, as you want to use the system for programming, choose Software Development. It will load a GUI desktop and install programming tools. You can always install more programs later.

If you have a fully supported processor in 64 bit and your host OS is 64 bit then you should be able to install a 64 client in a virtual machine. At the start of the construction of the virtual machine you either have to tell it you are going to install a 64 bit os or have it autodetected.

What virtual machine program are you using?

Download Mint 10, then use the built-in WUBI installer to install it inside Windows as a program. It will be slightly slower than a full install, but much better than running from a live CD, plus you won't have the hassle of having to use GRUB. IMO, it's better than using VM. And if you decide to get rid of Mint, all you need to do is use Control Panel > Add or Remove.

BTW, you can use the same method with most all Ubuntu based distros (Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, etc).

Then create a 64 bit VM to install the OS.

By the way you can get Oracle in a pre-made VM from Oracle. You don't need to install it.
