I'm trying to install Xubuntu on my virtual box on a mac. I was using this link
http://tomdru.ruhoh.com/installation/in ... evelopers/
and I have followed everything it says but I am still getting errors. I would describe the problem I am having, but if you click on the link, you'll see my comment at the bottom, so there's no need to explain it twice. ;) Any help?

I'm not really in the mood to read. I'm really just guessing after a quick skim. You are getting an error from virtual box when you try to mount the ISO? Is your physical hardware 64bit? Feel free to elaborate for those who are too lazy to speculate :D

Hey, sorry I took so long to reply. Yes my hardware is 64-bit. When I try to mount the ISO I get this warning.
"Failed to open the CD/DCD image

/Users/Me/Desktop/xubuntu-13.10-desktop-amd64.iso

Could not get the storage format of the medium

'/Users/Me/Desktop/xubuntu-13.10-desktop-amd64.iso'

(VERR_NOT_SUPPORTED)."

I couldn't find much else, but maybe this will help:

"On any host, you should enable the I/O APIC for virtual machines that you intend to use in 64-bit mode. See the section called “"Advanced" tab”."

Also, the NX bit support should sometimes be on, but that usually has to do with the OS itself.

Lastly: did you check the hashes of the downloaded ISO, checked that the file is not corrupted?

I agree with this, there are not many reasons why VirtualBox could not read an ISO other than the ISO being corrupted. You can find the checksum files for Xubuntu 13.10 here: Xubuntu 13.10 Release Mirror.
