MacOS Sierra VBoxManage: error: Details: code NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005), component MachineWrap,

Upgraded to Sierra (MacOS 10.12) and now VirtualBox VM fails to start.

Philips-MacBook-Pro-4:~ philip$ /Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VBoxManage --version
5.0.26r108824
Philips-MacBook-Pro-4:~ philip$ /Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VBoxManage startvm a655c9f0-ae71-4e2b-aafe-2c65d2be270f --type headless
Waiting for VM "a655c9f0-ae71-4e2b-aafe-2c65d2be270f" to power on...
VBoxManage: error: The virtual machine 'GameCenter_default_1471636751763_21834' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1 (0x1)
VBoxManage: error: Details: code NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005), component MachineWrap, interface IMachine

I am wondering a) if this is a known problem b) how can I find the root cause.

I moved your topic to "VirtualBox on Mac OS X pre-releases" since 10.12 is at beta 5 as of this writing.

First, I would upgrade to the latest and greatest VirtualBox, 5.1.4 (as of this writing).

Second, does the VM start up normally, i.e. non-headless?

Third, take a look at the following: Minimum information needed for assistance.
Do NOT send me Personal Messages (PMs) for troubleshooting, they are simply deleted.
Do NOT reply with the "QUOTE" button, please use the "POST REPLY", at the bottom of the form.
If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.
