    Hi Guys

    I have a problem with Windows 8 on Virtual Box, installs fine but after installing the additions and then rebooting i just get a blue screen (not the dreaded blue screen) but then nothing happens if i remove the guest additions its ok again but you dont get sharing etc without them being installed

    any ideas

    I can't remember but can you do a custom install of the guest tools and maybe do a few test runs installing all components except one at a time to see which one causes the blue screen. Probably start with the svga driver which I've found a culprit before with vmware workstation
