 **Note:**  Just because the host machine is 64-bit does not mean the VirtualBox will run a guest 64-bit machine.  Processor limits of the host machine seem to be the culprit or certain manufacturer's chips seem to be the limit. **Note:**  Just because the host machine is 64-bit does not mean the VirtualBox will run a guest 64-bit machine.  Processor limits of the host machine seem to be the culprit or certain manufacturer's chips seem to be the limit.

-Installing Guest Additions in run-level 3+
-  * https://linuxconfig.org/how-to-mount-cdrom-in-linux +
-  * First, go to the VirtualBox window that is running the guest machine and choose Devices > Insert Guest Additions CD Image +
-  * From a separate terminal window (via ssh) or in the VM window itself, su - root +
-  * yum install cdrecord +
-  * wodim --devices +
-    * (note the drive designation) +
-      * If that command fails on a CENTOS7 v7.2.1511 VirtualBox instance, try: wodim dev=/dev/sr0 --devices +
-      * If that succeeds, it should say something like 'VBOX'  'CD-ROM' +
-      * Or: wodim -prcap (although that doesn't seem to give you the info needed) +
-      * See [[https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/cdrkit/+bug/1203559]] +
-  * mkdir /media/cdrom  +
-  * mount -t iso9660 /dev/scd0 /media/cdrom +
-    * if you used "sr0" above, substitute sr0 for scd0 in the line above +
-  * cd /media/cdrom +
-  * Then run Linux version of script +
-    * Ex: sh VBoxLinuxAdditions.run +
-  * When done, cd / and eject and reboot +
