I normally choose debian 32 or 64 bit. But since Linux Mint is derived from Ubuntu , choosing Ubuntu may work as well.

Here are some VirtualBox appliances with Linux Mint. Try with them. As everyone suggested - both Debian and Ubuntu should do the job. Also be sure that you are using 32 bit OS with 32bit virtual machine and 64 bit OS with 64 bit machine.
