I tried to install Fedora 18 64 bit on my Virtual Box running on 64 bit windows 8  every time it failed with errors..

Finally I tried downloading 32 bit version and it got installed fine.

Only issue I faced is with the Install Virtual Box Guest Additions because unless other Debian based distributions Fedora does not install developer tools by default.

Fix

Sudo bash

enter your root password

yum update kernel*

reboot

yum install gcc kernel-devel kernel-headers dkms make bzip2

reboot

Fedora18 on Virtual Box
