install redhat 8 in virtualbox

Specs: Windows 7, Intel Core i3 2.13GHz/4GB/64bit
I have other virtual machines in Oracle VirtualBox. I want to add RedHat 8.0 as a virtual machine. I am having issues with mouse capture. I have chosen "generic wheel mouse" because I don't own any of the mouses listed in the set up dialog. I tried some of the others after "generic wheel mouse" was not capturing. I am using a Microsoft optical wheel mouse 1.1A USB. Also using 5 .iso "disks" to install RedHat8.0 but only lets me select disk 1. Would that be the problem with my mouse capture?

I have also tried both 64 and 32 bit installations. Main issue is mouse capture.

I assume that this should work but it is from VMware on install.

In the Mouse Selection screen, choose Generic - 3 Button Mouse (PS/2) and select the Emulate 3 Buttons option for three-button mouse support in the virtual machine. If you have a wheel mouse, you may choose Generic Wheel Mouse (PS/2).

It may be possible to fix the mouse also with guest additions and x.org config.

As for changing disks. You need to either re-select the iso or change the disk both in the drive but from the gui. If cd then you need to un-attach at the step and change disk, then re-attach it.

It may be easier if you try pre-made virtual machines. Also trying vmplayer may be easier.
