1. Uninstall VirtualBox using VirtualBox_uninstall.tool
2. Clean install VirtualBox using VirtualBox.pkg
3. At the end of the install, go to System Preferences, Security and Privacy, and the click the allow button

This should solve your issue .
This worked for me in Big Sur. In the General tab of the Security & Privacy preferences, there will be a button near the bottom (but above the lock icon). You will probably need to unlock the UI with the admin password, and then click the button to see the apps that need attention. A new window will pop up confirming a reboot. Accept the reboot and the changes will be applied when the restart is completed. It's a lousy UX, but it worked.

Unrelated to this exact problem, but turned out to be the next roadblockL: The next step for me was to install the extension pack to allow USB3 for my Windows guest. Then everything worked as expected.

Jared!

Thanks so much. Your suggestion fixed my "kernal error" after upgrading to Big Sur. Everything back to normal!!

In my case, it appeared after a restart (although the VirtualBox installer does not require it). After clicking the button a second restart is needed. After that, VirtualBox seems to function normally.

For me none of the solutions above worked.

But what works (tested twice) is booting to recovery (cmd+R) and enabling all components of sip.

Open Terminal in Recovery and type:

Code: Select all

csrutil clear
reboot
Then uninstall and re-install virtualbox.
If needed go to System Preferences - Privacy - General and accept the extensions.

If someone needs to reset kext completely:
1 Boot into recovery and delete entries in kext database with sqlite3 commands.
2 Reset PRAM. (Disable Firmware Password before - if set)
3 Uninstall and re-install virtualbox

I used to use

Code: Select all

csrutil enable --without debug --without fs
If using this combination virtualbox can not load the extensions in macOS Big Sur. No problems in Catalina.

I guess and hope this is still a bug as I would like to continue using my modified sip setup for other reasons.

Thank you, vbox_tom!
The csrutil clear + reinstall + reboot worked like a charm.

My setup is with Big Sur 11.0.1 and VBox 6.1.16 r140961 (Qt5.6.3).
Until trying to reset the csrutil I had reinstalled VBox several times + reboots and watched closely the Security & Privacy to allow any Oracle extension that would appear but without any success.

My extensions were loaded successfully even prior to this, but the VMs would not start.
Here is the list, in case anyone else needs to check it.

Code: Select all

sudo kextstat | grep -i virtualbox

Executing: /usr/bin/kmutil showloaded
No variant specified, falling back to release

I have installed VB successfully on my MacBook Pro running Big Sur, but I can't seem to import VMs (Linux and Windows) from my iMac.
Has anyone else imported VMs to VB on an Apple machine running Big Sur?

@RMR,

1. What do you mean by "import"? Hint: Hopefully not by using OVA if they were already installed using VirtualBox on the 'old' Machine.

2. What is your end goal? i.e. Total transfer of the VMs from 'old' to 'new' or to 'duplicate' installs on both computers, which could be a problem for Windows VMs (activation/licensing)

Worked perfectly here as well - THANK YOU!!!! I did / do have the issue where it's worked flawlessly with bridged networking before, won't work with it now after various attempts. It works just fine with NAT though so a non-issue. Running both a Windows 10 VM and an Ubuntu Linux v20 VM - both with guest additions.

Just a warning that the "fix" (ie the csrutil clear) does also break McAfee (or did for me)... that was resolved with uninstalling it, rebooting, re-installing it. All is working fine.
