After going through the process of installation of a Unix OS (in this case Mageia) on VirtualBox 4.08, the next step is to remove the LiveCD.

Since the LiveCD is virtual, how should one proceed to remove it? Deleting the ISO does not seem like a clean way to do this.

Should the setting be changed in the storage section?

Have you tried editing the VM configuration? – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Aug 21 '11 at 11:54
Should I go into the settings > storage and do something about the LiveCD? But what exactly I am not sure. If you know please explain. Thanks. + see edits in question. – Benjamin Aug 21 '11 at 12:03

On the screenshot you provided, with the Live CD selected, click the little CD icons on the right. That should provide you with a dropdown box from which you can select Remove Disc from Virtual Drive
