    Can't install Win 8 RP in Virtual Box - Had no problems with CP


    I've had no issues installing other builds of Win however I have downloaded the RP and when I get to the part of picking the ISO to mount into VBox I get this error:

    So instead I tried mounting the ISO on my host machine using CloneCD and then selecting the drive to mount in VBox and this time the installation actually starts up but then when I get to the install screen I get this error:

    Very strange. I've downloaded the ISO on two seperate occassions to make sure it wasn't corrupted.

    I had this issue in the first installation of Windows 8 RP, is related with the installation of the dvd driver, hard disk driver or the USB driver, normally depends of the version of Virtual Box that you are using, in this link you will find the steps for the solution.
