VirtualBox’s guest additions won’t install

When trying to install Guest Additions soon after installing Windows, nothing happens after clicking on Install guest additions.

It turns out that Guest Additions is mounted in a virtual CD. As Windows is still in the CD tray and VirtualBox, for some stupid reason, can only see one mount, it can’t install Guest Additions.

Solution: unmount the CD-ROM and click on Install guest additions.
