I am attempting to Install Guest Additions CentOS 64 (guest), Win 8 (host) Oracle's VM Virtual Box quite unsuccessfully. I have tried to follow the method answered here. But, I get the "mount point /media/cdrom does not exist" issue also mentioned in the same post.

A mount point is just a directory, you can create it (as root) with:

mkdir /media/cdrom
