Sorry if this has been mentioned before or if I have posted in the wrong place but I only just found this forum and so signed up.
Last night I discovered that Virtual Box 5.0 was now available and so I upgraded my existing virtual machines.
Everything was fine until tried to upgrade the Guest Additions in my Windows 10 technical preview (On a Windows 8.1 64 bit host).
I was required to reboot the machine to complete the installation whereupon I was met by the blue screen of death. It informed me there was a problem with a driver.
I had to attach the virtual hard drive to another VM to gain access to the drive contents.
I then had to rename C:\Windows\System32\drivers\VBoxGuest.sys to be able to get my Windows 10 VM to work again.
(Taught me to take a snapshot before doing any major changes)
I may be wrong but it seems to be something to do with Windows 10 requires all drivers to be signed otherwise they get rejected by Windows.
Various changes to the Windows Operating System, also for the Intranet
