10. once the install is complete and the VM is up and running (may look like crap) go to VBox menu "virtual machine" and select "install virtual box tools". This should start an auto install on the via and result in a couple reboots.
11. Start using windows.
Once you do it you will find it to be trivial for the next install. I promise.

2. With Windows as the main window, go the VB menu Devices > Insert Guest Additions as CD Image. This should put the VB Extensions into your 'virtual' CD drive — you can then navigate to it inside Windows and install the additions. You want to double click on the file which looks like VBoxWindowsAdditions (or something similar).

I'm sorry, but I've not seen that window before in that situation, so I'm not sure what's going on. You should just be able to see your Windows drives within Windows, including the cd drive with the Additions, but clearly something is different.
I don't have VBox on this computer (I have Parallels on this one, VBox on the laptop), but I'll download it and give it a go to see if I can reproduce what's going on.
