Hi i want to install 32 bit windows xp or ubuntu in my windows 7 7057 version. But I am not able to do so. I do not get the option of mount dvd/cd in the left side of virtual box 3.1.2 version. Instead I get a storage icon there which has IED primary master and IED secondary master. I give the virtual disc for the former and the iso image of xp in the secondary and it is not running. I am getting the same for even Ubuntu 64 os image. Kindly help me. Virtualisation is supported in my machine.

Go in to settings for the virtual machine and make sure that you have a optical drive. If not add one.

Then simply select the optical drive on the left hand side and choose the iso to mount, or the physical optical drive.
