I assume that this workaround is necessary because you migrated an existing installation to a VM. A virgin NT4 installation should work fine with the Additions.

    initial v1  
    77Finally, I got it to work with the following procedure: 
    88 
    9 1. Install the additions from the .iso 
    10 2. When the system boots back up, just close all the display warning windows.  Go to Control Panel->Devices and set the startup type to "Disabled" on the VBoxVideo Driver 
    11 3. Boot the system back up and go back to Control Panel->Devices.  Set the startup type to "System" and then start the driver. 
    12 4. Get the display properties.  When you select the "Settings" tab the screen will flash like the driver just got activated.  The "Color Palette" section won't be blank anymore.  Set the palette to "True Color", exit, and reboot the machine 
    13 5. After the machine boots, the driver will be working (at least it was for me).

    1515I'm not sure what is going on, but I've had similar problems on NT with the drivers for hardware cards if the color palette was initially set to something the driver couldn't support.
