I'm currently running VBox 5.2.4 on Hipster with Win-7 Pro and Debian 9.3 as 
guests on an HP Z400  I followed the wiki instructions.  Here are the scripts I 

# cat tst1
pkgtrans VirtualBox-5.2.4-SunOS-amd64-r119785.pkg . all
rm SUNWvbox/install/checkinstall
sed -i /checkinstall/d SUNWvbox/pkgmap
pkgadd -d . SUNWvbox

# cat tst2
VBoxManage extpack install 

Guests reading from the optical drive is pretty well buggered.  Disk images 
work fine.   If you want to migrate a Windows system to a VM you need to use 
disk2vhd to create the disk image ofd the filesystem.

You also need to load the extensions from an iso image in each guest.  I had 
some issues with screen resolution on Debian, but when I came back from my trip 
the problem was gone.  No idea what the issue was.

good luck!
