Big Sur 11.5.2. issues.Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)

Postby Jim Travelstead » 13. Aug 2021, 17:41

Updated to Big Sur 11.5.2. on iMac
tried to open my Windows 10 64-bit virtual machine and got this error

The virtual machine 'Windows 10 64-bit' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1 (0x1).


Result Code:
NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
Component:
MachineWrap
Interface:
IMachine {85632c68-b5bb-4316-a900-5eb28d3413df}


Then got a bx open with this:
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.

Reinstalled latest version of VirtualBox and the extensions and looks like is working again.

When you installed the update did you have the System Preferences > Security & Privacy Apps window open. It should flash up a prompt for permission to allow installation of the Oracle update? After permission is given and the installation completes you should then get a prompt to reboot.

If that doesn't happen then something is screwed up in MacOS :!:

I had the same problem, macOS updated to 11.5.2, no VM would start up.
Just running the VirtualBox-6.1.26-145957-OSX.dmg installer again did not help.
But running the previous installer VirtualBox-6.1.22-144080-OSX.dmg made macOS trigger the check again, then I ran the latest VirtualBox-6.1.26-145957-OSX.dmg installer, which triggered the macOS check once more, and now it works again.
