    The install screens are too large for the VBox initial window (i.e. before Guest Additions can be installed) VB EOS install-2.jpg

    I got around this by using the screen reader option - then you can hear what options you are selecting when tabbing out of the visible window

    BTW it doesn't like dynamic vdi's either : best to use a fixed disk (which you can always expand later using the virtual media manager) - i've started with 30gb.

    I had this same problem. Found a way around it. Goto into machine settings -> Display - Change Graphics Controller to - VBoxSVGA
    That fixed it for me. (Even if it says Invalid settings detected). Reboot VM.
