OK, here is the possible problem:
Virtualbox.xml wrote: <MediaRegistry>
<DVDImages>
<Image uuid="{4f454f9d-0ef6-4786-8d49-fb6e0c9954c6}"
location="C:/Users/jacek.brzezinski/VirtualBox VMs/JBRVM/JBRVM-disk002.iso"/>
<Image uuid="{ae4ab52f-6409-4807-ba98-06329b18966c}"
location="C:/Users/jacek.brzezinski/VirtualBox VMs/JBRVM/JBRVM-disk002.iso"/>
</DVDImages>
</MediaRegistry>

The same ISO is attempted to be loaded twice.

This "Virtualbox.xml" only has one of the ISO's.

Reboot your host.
Rename your "C:\Users\jacek.brzezinski\.VirtualBox\VirtualBox.xml" to "VirtualBox.xml-bad".
Then extract the zipped "VirtualBox.xml" into "C:\Users\jacek.brzezinski\.VirtualBox\"
Then try Virtualbox.

There was another problem when starting the virtual machine:

Failed to open session for virtual machine JBRVM.

Call to NEMR0InitVMPart2 failed: VERR_NEM_INIT_FAILED (VERR_NEM_VM_CREATE_FAILED).

OK, that is a 6.1.28 bug. First try VERR_NEM_VM_CREATE_FAILED: What do I do?, then if that does not work, Revert Virtualbox and Extension Pack to 6.1.26 https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Download_Old_Builds

The first tip worked - the virtual machine now boots without a problem.
Thanks again for your help! :D

Disabling Hyper-V (which I already done in the past) didn't help me, I tried re-disabling it again just in case and rebooted, but in the end I needed to revert to 6.1.26, which works perfectly.
