Hello, two quick questions if I may, having just successfully installed a Win 10 VM (chuffed) 🤣

 

i would like to install a Linux Mint (Cinammon ver 19.x) VM and am wondering which Linux Template would be best?

 

How much disk space should I allow for the install? I will only be installing a few apps and doing some web browsing.

 

Thanks in advance. 👍

@Jetjockey Mint is based on Debian, Ubuntu. Try one of these, i guess both will work. Can't remember which one i have chosen. I have a 30GB vdisk attached whith a allocation of 7-8GB for a basic Mint 19 xfce install.

Thank you.

 

BTW.....

 

How do you set up / allocate a Vdisk? I thought they were normally set up from DDR memory, but obviously not 30GB. I’m setting up my virtual machines to operate from the SSD Cache drives for speed..

 

Thanks
