Windows 8 Preview on VirtualBox

Microsoft Windows 8 Consumer Preview or Enterprise Preview will run perfectly on VirtualBox virtual machine. However, after I installed VirtualBox Guest Additions, Microsoft Windows 8 Preview did not run correctly. I could not open my email client or desktop. So, I wiped out the virtual machine and start over without install Guest Addition.
