Guest Additions installation fails in Windows XP 64 guest

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


While the installation of an addition for Virtual Box this error appeared and the Try Again button is not helping and if I press Skip another error appears. Can anyone help me with this error ? What I have missed ? The installer is downloaded from a trusted source and is compatible with my Window XP (x64).

Thank you !

Sun Xvm VirtualBOX Guest Additions 2.0.0.S.

You can fix this by the following steps.

  • Flush VDI after certain amount of data that you have written.
  • Configure it individually for each disk that is using the command, shown in the image.
  • Value to disk should be "0" on 1st channel for master device.
  • Value for slave device should be "1"
  • For 2nd master device and channel the value should be "2" or "3"
  • specify no value for [b] to remove extra data keys.
  • In this way you can fix the error.
