    I recently installed Lion on Virtualbox and, obviously, when I go full screen, it just leaves the large black border around the small virtual system. Whenever I try to install guest additions, it just gives me an error message saying that vboxsolarisadditions.pkg couldn't be installed... What do I need to do to fix this? If it makes any difference, my host system is Windows 7.

    To my knowledge, there currently isn't any Guest Additions for Mac OS X. This may change in the future.

    The guest additions you are trying to install is for Solaris, despite having a .pkg extension.

    edit oops ignore me I read that wrong way round (I see now you're virtualizing Lion on a Win 7 host)
