Can't install Virtual Box 5.0 extensions into Windows 10 guest (Fedora 21 Host)

Guest type: Windows Host type: Linux


I am running Fedora 21 on a 24 GB, Core i7 machine, Virtual Box 5.0. I created a Windows 10 (Enterprise) guest, activated it, installed a few applications (MS Office 2013, Visual Studio 2013, WinRAR, Notepad++). I also activated Windows 10 Enterprise.

I took a snapshot and attempted to install the guest additions. Just after the details said that the WDDM driver was attempting to install, the screen went blank.

I let the guest run for many hours and nothing changed.

I reset the guest and it booted into a blank screen.

I restored the snapshot (just prior to attempting to install the guest additions) and rebooted the guest.

I attempted to install the additions again and had the same result.

The problem is most likely fixed. Please test the latest 5.0.x Guest Additions from the test builds page.
