Linux Mint 19.1 Cinnamon Release Notes - Linux Mint | https://www.linuxmint.com/
These release notes are actually *helpful*. Covers the issue I had with garbled display on VirtualBox *and* being able to move around windows that are too large (like Timeshift's setup wizard) to fit on the screen at the default screen resolution.

The problem I had with the system menu not showing up on the first reboot after setup went away after resetting the menus (or a reboot).
If the screen is garbled when launching Linux Mint in Virtualbox, switch to console with HOST+F1 (e.g. the RIGHT Ctrl key, no ALT) and back to tty7 with HOST+F7.

Another workaround is to disable "nested paging" (in the System -> Acceleration settings) and to increase the video memory to 128MB (in the Display settings).

Note: This issue only affects the live session. You don't need these workarounds post-installation.

Wonky display on this one Win10 startup screen in VirtualBox - Linux Mint Forums | https://forums.linuxmint.com/
I asked a question a few days ago about a video snow display when booting LM19 Live DVD in Virtual Box. Turns out that you need to use R-CTRL / F2 followed by R-CTRL / F7 [Host-F2, Host-F7] to go in and out of a terminal to clear the snow. Have you tried this to fix your Wonk? Maybe the Linux Graphics Drive is not really up to snuff with the Virtual Machine Host graphics. After installing the LM 19 system in the VM I have not seen snow again. Or any Wonk. Or at least now your kind of Wonk.

windows 7 - Setting up VirtualBox guest for PXE boot - Super User | https://superuser.com/
Solution: make sure the VM is using bridged networking (to the physical host adapter, 'eno1' or whatever) and install the Oracle secret-sauce Extension Pack.

virtualbox.org • View topic - PXE boot from bridged adaptor | https://forums.virtualbox.org/
Lots of good suggestions here, but all that was *really* necessary was to bridge the physical adapter ('eno1' for me) and install the non-free Extension Pack.

The bundled PXE ROM is not sufficient to boot the Windows workstation installation environment.

[vbox-dev] Attaching .vdi image as a removable disk [https://www.virtualbox.org/]
Actually, if you give 'usb-creator-gtk' the '--allow-system-internal' flag, you can just directly install onto another attached .vdi.

How to SSH to a VirtualBox guest externally through a host? - Stack Overflow
The best way to login to a guest Linux VirtualBox VM is port forwarding. By default, you should have one interface already which is using NAT. Then go to the Network settings and click the Port Forwarding button. Add a new Rule:

Host port 3022, guest port 22, name ssh, other left blank.
or from command line

VBoxManage modifyvm myserver --natpf1 "ssh,tcp,,3022,,22"
