Okay I now have installed Windows 7 on VirtualBox but nothing happens when I click insert guest additions. Also I do not see an option to install guest additions like I have with other systems.

 

Any idea about this and how to resolve this? I need this so I can have screen that fits with the VBox.

 

Thanks.

Do you see the disc inserted on File Explorer (within the VM)? If not, try inserting the disc into the virtual drive manually (the path is InstallDirectory\VBoxGuestAdditions.iso)

I have decided to install Windows 7 on VMware Player for now as that is what worked last time. Thanks anyway.
