Here is what I've done:
- I created virtual HDD for windows 8
- then I installed windows 8.
- After clean windows installation I installed virtualbox guest additions as first application.
There was no problem until, I enabled 2d and 3d video acceleration (both at the same time). Windows started well but, when I clicked "X" and selected "send shudown signal" from popup, windows screen went black and started flickering logon screen.
The problem is, it doesn't occur when I disable both video accelerations. Is that glitch of Virtualbox or something I did wrong?
Please explain how to install Windows 8 as guest OS with 2d and 3d video acceleration enabled.
Here is my system configuration
Host OS: Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit Guest OS: Windows 8 Pro 64 bit Virtualbox v: 4.2.6
And Hardware specs:
It's Dell Inspiron 15R (N5110) laptop with GeForce 525m VGA.
By the way, I haven't install any official video driver form my graphics card: it's built-in driver of Ubuntu.
