Virtualbox and Windows guests

Virtualbox includes 3D support for Windows guests, but it is not 100% reliable. If you want to use it, then you have install Windows guest additions in safe mode. If you install guest additions in normal mode, the installation routine is not able to overwrite necessary files. So, when virtual machine is booting press F8, and choose Safe mode.

When installation finishes you should shut down virtual machine, edit settings and click 3D support checkbox. When you start virtual machine you’ll have the 3D support.
