I believe Guest Additions is already included within Linux Mint, so you don't have to install it. You can test by changing the resolution, testing clipboard sharing, drag'n'drop, etc. It should all work by default.

Thanks J_L
My earlier success with VirtualBox was while I was using Mint as the Host and yes Guest Additions installed with no problems. I may revisit vBulletin again sometime and see if I can get it to work correctly while using Win7 as the Host.

Downgraded to Mageia, PC-BSD, Ubuntu, Windows Server 2012, and Windows XP due to lack of time and interest.

I must have a penchant for this... Re-added Haiku, Manjaro, and OpenIndiana.

Didn't bother with Guest Additions for Haiku this time. Set a custom VESA resolution and bash scripted [ftp "ftp://Windows.7.FTP.Server/"] for full-screen support and shared folders. Had to decrease mouse acceleration by a notch for better control.

Manjaro worked fine, except Guest Additions wouldn't auto-mount my shared folders (which would require my account to have vboxsf privileges). So I had to edit /etc/fstab.

As for OpenIndiana, I stuck with GNOME2 after noticing it's the only desktop fully supported. Guest Additions worked fine, but make sure you remove it before updating. To fix sound:
sudo update_drv -a -i '"pci8086,2415"' audio810

I have TrueCrypt FDE on Windows 7 64-bit and don't use the rest enough to need multi-boot. My other machine has Linux Mint Maya XFCE though.

Anyways, that first post is 2.5 years outdated, it's currently:
Haiku (http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch09.html#idp57519472)
Mageia (GNOME)
Manjaro (XFCE)
OpenIndiana (sudo update_drv -a -i '"pci8086,2415"' audio810)
PC-BSD (KDE)
Ubuntu (https://fixubuntu.com/)
Windows Server 2012 R2 (http://www.win2012workstation.com/)
Windows XP SP3 (Direct3D Support)

Maya is fine, but a bit outdated. I had to update XFCE to use applets for example. But once all that is set up, it's light and stable. Should last a long time.
