    Display Issues on VirtualBox


    I'm not getting the correct resolution in VirtualBox for Windows 8. I tried to install the Guest additions but I still can see the yellow exclamation on Display drivers. Tried to manually extract and install no go.

    It's Windows 8 64-bit on Windows 7 x64 VirtualBox ... Any idea?
