    I can install W10 itself OK, but when I tried to install the Guest Additions, it crashed out just after a message on installing the "WDDM drivers for Windows 8 or newer".

    It's possible I'm doing something wrong though.

    Have you got the latest version of VirtualBox?

    Another thing to try is Enable 3D Acceleration and give the VM more Video Memory, i put mine up to 256mb and it seemed to help.
