If you’ve just downloaded the Windows 8 Release Preview ISO using Google Chrome – don’t.
Redo it, using IE.
I actually downloaded the image, didn’t checksum the ISO (i.e. check it was a 100% copy of the one off the Microsoft site), hooked the ISO up to VirtualBox and got this:
“No Device drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click OK.”
I tried a multitude of solutions, but the only way was: download the ISO through IE.
Here you’ll find other stuff on how to solve problems while installing Windows 8 on VirtualBox.
Bonus: tips and tricks for Windows 8.
Having used Chromium (i.e. Chrome in developer’s edition) to download the Windows 8 RTM, there were no problems with the above.
