I'm trying to run a Linux VirtualBox instance inside a Windows 7 VirtualBox instance, but Linux (tried both Puppy and Mint) doesn't boot.

My research says that this should be possible, see here for example: Can you run one virtual machine inside another? but I can't get it to work.

Here are a couple of screenshots showing where the boot process stops for Linux Mint and Puppy Linux.

Linux Mint stuck during boot Puppy Linux stuck during boot

What am I doing wrong?
