@armandogtzc
Take a look at installation fails for vbox 6.0.8 on osx 10.14.5.

I'll update the 1st post to reflect that as well...

Restart your mac.
VB5E2TV963 is the code for oracle.
It's ok for me with Mojave and Virtual Box 6.

This worked for me as well. Many thanks!

I installed 6.08 on my iMac which is running Mac OS 10.13.6

system_profiler -detailLevel mini > system_profiler.txt; kextstat | grep -v com.apple >> system_profiler.txt; gzip system_profiler.txt

That will create a "system_profiler.txt.gz" file in the current directory (default is your home directory). Attach that file to your response.

Also:
  1. Download the latest release (5.1.26 as of this writing), or the latest test build (https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Testbuilds).
  2. Reboot.
  3. Mount the DMG from step #1. Run "VirtualBox_Uninistall.tool". Make sure there are no error messages. Reboot.
  4. Install "VirtualBox.pkg". As soon as you start the installation, press Cmd+L to show the log. Select "Show All Logs" from the drop-down menu. Before the last step of the installation (Done), click the "Save" in the log window. ZIP and attach that file.
  5. Start VirtualBox. If it crashes, open Console.app and look at "~/Library/Logs". Is there a VirtualBox related log? ZIP and attach that file.


What if you're like me and already uninstalled it before even starting these steps?

Those steps do not apply in your case. Please try to re-install VirtualBox. If you look at the first post, you'll be taken to a thread titled "installation fails for vbox 6.0.8 on osx 10.14.5". Read it please...

I told you to try with 6.0.8, not 6.0.9.

It would be the exact same result, though.

I need details, way more details. Do you see the warning about Oracle not being allowed or not? Can you install 6.0.6 first, which doesn't require notarization, but it *does* require the consent? And follow the instructions of the very first message in this thread.
