    Personally, I like VMware Player better.
    Thanks Shawn. I will try that when I am back on my Laptop.

    Tutorial updated for Windows 8 Consumer Preview.

    I had no issues installing VirtualBox 4.1.8 guest additions with the 64-bit Windows 8 Consumer Preview on a 64-bit Windows 7.

    However, it did error out when trying to install VirtualBox 4.1.8 guest additions with the 32-bit Windows 8 Consumer Preview on a 64-bit Windows 7.

    Yes. This is what I got.

    Had no problems with VMPlayer though. Guest additions installed OK.

    Hello Donald,

    I'm wondering if it would be reversed if done on a 32-bit Windows 7. LOL

    What I find interesting is that VMplayer doesn't even own up to windows 8. You have to install it as Windows 7 yet it seems to work better than VBox. Ho Hum!

    I have VirtualBox installed in a Windows XP 32bit OS machine with a 32bit CPU (old Pentium 4). Can I install Windows 8 (32bit) in the Virtual Box? Thanks

    Don't forget Shawn that there is a problem with guest additions with W8CP 32-bt in Virtualbox so it won't run very well.
