    64-bit Windows 10


    Update:

    I had no issues installing the latest VirtualBox 4.1.10 guest additions with the 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 8 Consumer Preview on a 64-bit Windows 7 with default settings.

    Windows 7 x64 SP1 Home Premium/Win 8.1 in VBox


    I had a problem. It automatically installed the experimental 3D WDDM driver which cause my VM to to freeze before the logon screen. The 3D driver was autochecked and greyed so I could not deselect it. The workaround was, immediately after the install before the reboot, to go into device manager and uninstall the WDDM driver.

    I had problems with the latest VirtualBox 4.1.10 guest additions. They just did not install. But since my vBox works flawlessly, I did not persue it.

    In the VirtualBox Forum, Win 8 thread. Several people have had this problem and the devs are working on it.

    Windows 8


    When we run Windows 8 CP via VirtualBox and after some time we want to shut them down, we must shut down Windows 8 first and then close the virtualbox or just the Virtualbox?

    Shut down Windows 8 just as you would if it were on a real PC otherwise you could have problems with Windows 8.

    The vBox window you can shut down as soon as Windows is launched. It is only needed for start.

    but you should not manually shut down the guest window. You should shut down Windows 8 which will then close that window..
