So I am trying to install Windows XP in Oracle VirtualBox, the issue I am having is the first thing that happens when the VM boot's is it loads the user agreement which you have to push " F8 - I agree " but when I push F8 is iTunes comes up. Any ideas of how to work around this?

Try Fn + F8 or turning on the "Use F keys as Standard Function keys" in the Keyboard section of System Preferences.

You are the man, I had to go turn on the standard function keys to get it working. I doubt I will need Windows but currently in college so who knows and may be nice to have pre-installed.

If I may ask why do I see so many people on here use Parallels? Is there a perk to that over Oracle Virtualbox?
