    64-bit Windows 10


    Tutorial has been updated for changes in the newer VirtualBox 4.1.4r74291 version.

    You now are able to select Windows 8 or Windows 8 (64-bit) as your OS type instead of "Windows 7", and you can now install the Guest Additions in either 32-bit or 64-bit Windows 8 withour having to use compatibility mode.

    Hello Omar, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    Could you post some more details on what you mean so that we may be able to help?

    Hi! Thanks for your quick reply.



    This is what I'm seeing every time I run Windows 8 32 bit on Virtualbox. I tried removing it and doing it again, but nothing works. I am considering trying to run the 64 version instead, when I get around to it. Any hints would be appreciated. I am running Virtualbox 4.1.4 on Windows 7 64 bit.

    Thanks!

    Omar,

    Double check to make sure that you have hardware virtualization enabled in your BIOS settings.

    Could you also upload and post the contents of the VBox.log file and VBox.png in your D:\VirtualBOX\Windows 8 Developer preview\Logs folder? It may be able to help us determine better what the issue may be.

    Hi, thanks for the quick reply.

    Sorry about that, but I already have removed the 32-bit version and tried using the 64-bit version of Windows 8. I have gotten closer, the only thing left is that I need a 64-bit processor, but that's impossible because the host is Windows 7 64-bit version.

    Also, I have no idea what are BIOS settings, could you explain?

    Thanks!

    Omar,

    If you currently have Windows 7 64-bit installed on your computer (host - not the VM), then you should already have a 64-bit processor.

    Here's a guide at the link below that may be able to help with the BIOS settings.

    How to enter the BIOS or CMOS setup.

    Hi

    For some reason I can't get BIOS to show up. I think I will try dual-booting Win8 instead of using VirtualBox as some users on the Virtualbox forum said that dumping VMs works sometimes I'll update as soon as I get to doing this dual boot technique.

    Thanks for trying to help! You are awesome.

    Vista and Win7


    In preparation for the Beta I made a trial installation of vBox 4.1.8. on my laptop. Both the Win8 DE and the extensions. What I am unable to install are the Guest Additions. It always hangs up on the PnP driver and aborts.

    Because of that I also cannot set my screen to more than 800x600. Any bigger resolution works but then the screen shows only partly and the whole bottom of the screen disappears.

    Anybody have an idea what I can try with that.
