Follow a "start the VM from cold-boot" / "observe error" / "shutdown the VM" cycle. With the VM shut down completely (not paused or saved), right-click on the VM in the VirtualBox Manager and select "Show Log". Save only the first "VBox.log", ZIP it and attach it to your response (see the "Upload attachment" tab below the reply form).
If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.

I tried it after problems with VBox 5.2.0 and OSX starts.

But it starts to interctive UEFI, shows comand line and really don't know what to do - know not any OSX command to get it continue booting.
Here's screenshot:

I think I already told you the instructions on how to post the log. Can you please read them again? They usually work...

Cannot post log now 'cause VBox reports VT-x is not available. Really don't know what happened and I created extra thread.
