Window 8 display problem after installing guest additions

I installed Windows 8 Consumer Preview (64-bit) build 8250 and it was working fine until i installed guest additions (4.1.10). I rebooted after installing just as the installer suggested, but afterwards there seems to be some display problems.

When booting up I can see the Win8 logo and the loader animation initially, but by the time windows should display the home screen it's just a black page. Sometimes it flickers a bit but then back to black page again.

My host OS is Windows7 (64-bit).
