The pictures you attached show that you are running WINDOWS and Windows programs in VBox. I wish I understood why you need Linux if you run Windows.
(1) This is a Linux forum and
(2) The problem is: your knowledge about Windows is way below the minimum requirements.
(3) Get the Oracle VirtualBox Manual and study thoroughly what "GUEST" and "HOST" means. Look closely what is written on the stripe that says about 24 / 32 bit. It'a about the GUEST OPERATING SYSTEM.
(4) Get the Windows Manual, study the Control Panel chapters and set up your screen resolution.
(5) Finally, install Windows. It is an operating system and it can run without Linux.

...And Linux, obviously, can run very well without Windows standing in its way.

Good luck! :)

I don't have Windows 7 anymore but if I remember correctly.
In Windows, right-click the mouse in the middle of the desktop (not on an icon).
Choose Display Properties (or similar named).
There you will have the settings needed *IF* the installation supports 32bits display.

That's about as much as I can say... hope this helps.
