    Default VirtualBox, VirtualXPVHD and Windows 8 install problem

    I have been able to install XP using VirtualXPVHD up to the XP install message, "deleting temporary files". I get a black screen and the system hangs.

    Has anyone on this form installed VirtualXPVHD with VirtualBox? If so, what folder did you use to store VirtualXPVHD. I am running with Admin privileges, or so I believe.

    Quite new to Windows 8...skipped Windows 7.

    Yes, that is the exact procedure I used. And as I stated above, everything works perfectly until the XP install is doing it's cleanup: removing temporary files. Baffling!

    Have you thought about using Hpyer-V in windows 8. I'm not sure if it's with 8/8.1 or 8 Pro/8.1 Pro. It works quite nicely....have a look here.

    Run virtual machines on Windows 8 with Client Hyper-V - Microsoft Windows
