[Solved] Windows 8.1 in VirtualBox - guest-additions

Postby ManfredB » 21. Feb 2019, 19:59

Hallo zusammen,

ich habe Windows 8.1 in VirtualBox installiert, Host: ArchLinux

Nun will ich die virtualbox-guest-additions installieren,
doch eine normale Installation läuft nicht, sondern die additions müssen erst heruntergeladen werden,
bei jedem Versuch endet es mit einem Fehler. angeblich Netzwerk.

Ich habe das VirtualBox-Netzwerk mit NAT eingestellt, denn Bridge ist wohl nicht mehr aktuell.

Doch warum werden in Additions nicht direkt aus dem vorhandenen Systrem von VirtualBox installiert?

So war das doch bisher immer.
Oder ist das in Version 6.0 nicht mehr üblich?

Ich wüßte gerne, was ich da machen kann.

Gruß
Manfred

Do not download the Guest Additions (GAs) ISO separately, it's a recipe for a disaster. Always use the GAs that come already bundled with your VirtualBox installation. See ch. 4.1. Introduction to Guest Additions:
4.1. Introduction to Guest Additions wrote:The Oracle VM VirtualBox Guest Additions for all supported guest operating systems are provided as a single CD-ROM image file which is called VBoxGuestAdditions.iso. This image file is located in the installation directory of Oracle VM VirtualBox. To install the Guest Additions for a particular VM, you mount this ISO file in your VM as a virtual CD-ROM and install from there.
...
In the Devices menu in the virtual machine's menu bar, Oracle VM VirtualBox has a menu item Insert Guest Additions CD Image, which mounts the Guest Additions ISO file inside your virtual machine.
If not prompted by auto-run, run "VBoxWindowsAdditions.exe" from the CD.

Hello socratis,

thank you very much.

Now it is ready.

For the german Users:

Ich habe zuerst einmal Windows 8.1 auf Windows 10 aufgerüstet.
Dann alle Updates durchgeführt.

Schließlich die virtualbox-guest-additions-iso heruntergeladen und dann installiiert.

Nun habe ich Windows10 in VirtualBox im Fullscreen 1920x1080.

Da ich nun auch Zugriff auf den Host habe, ist alles sehr einfach mit Zusätzen.

Gruß
