Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)

Postby Peklo » 17. Aug 2017, 10:27

This is a copy of a post from /viewtopic.php?f=22&t=84092 on a suggestion of @michaln I'm cross copying here.

...problem, including now re-install of the latest build fails. Something to do with the latest Beta of High Sierra V10.13 (build 17A344b) aka Version 6.
On start of a headless virtual machine I get:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
CODE: SELECT ALL   EXPAND VIEW
Failed to open a session for the virtual machine ubuntu-16.04LTS - dev.

The virtual machine 'ubuntu-16.04LTS - dev' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1 (0x1).

Result Code: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
Component: MachineWrap
Interface: IMachine {b2547866-a0a1-4391-8b86-6952d82efaa0}


PS: I've tried installing a VirtualBox Test build with the same result.
On a normal start as well

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
CODE: SELECT ALL   EXPAND VIEW
Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)

Make sure the kernel module has been loaded successfully.

where: suplibOsInit what: 3 VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_INSTALLED (-1908) - The support driver is not installed. On linux, open returned ENOENT.

Issue has been resolved with the VirtualBox-5.1.26-117224-OSX 23-09-52-950 and removing USB port from the VM.

That makes very little sense.

Are you running with default settings, i.e. SIP etc. enabled? Did you explicitly allow the VirtualBox kexts to be loaded?

Was it a clean High Sierra install or did you upgrade an existing OS X system with VirtualBox already installed?

See https://developer.apple.com/library/con ... index.html for background.
