  2. Guys, Turn off Hyper V and Virtual Box works fine on Windows8 (at least, It did work in my case)

    > In Control Panel, tap or click Programs, and then tap or click Programs and Features.
    > Tap or click Turn Windows Features on or off.
    > Select Hyper‑V, tap or click OK, and then tap or click Close.
