VM does not start. Logs attached. This is error I receive:
Не удалось открыть сессию для виртуальной машины Windows 7.

The virtual machine 'Windows 7' has terminated unexpectedly during startup because of signal 11.

Код ошибки: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
Компонент: MachineWrap
Интерфейс: IMachine {5047460a-265d-4538-b23e-ddba5fb84976}

Please help to fix it somehow.

MacOS 10.14.4 (Same problem was on 10.14.1)

When I was going to it was literally crashing and I could not install it at all. I even tried it with admin privileges but still, it was the same. Please help me to fix the problem.

Does "Headless Start" still work without crash?

I believe that i have the same problem. I'm kind of new in Mac, so i don't know how do they manage the OS updates, but i think that the crash it start happening after one of the updates. I have 3 VM's (1 linux and 2 windows) and they all have the same issue. Few weeks ago there was no problem at all. I tried:

- uninstalling and installing last version of VirtualBox.
- uninstalling and installing again.
- uninstall, reboot and install again.

none of them seems to work.

I tried headless with virtual machine called "Linux64" with:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
VBoxHeadeless -s Linux64


It seems that it's working. I opened VirtualBox and it appears running, and it shows in the preview the login screen. I don't know what to do with this result though.

As an alternative, i tried CoRD and use the "remote screen", but it crashed. Then i tried the same thing with "Royal TSX" and it worked(it seems that isn't free, but right now it worked for me without any payments). For me at least is a small step. Now i can at least use the machine.

Also works the freerdp(royal TSX) says that they use that so i tried. My first try seems a bit slow but, i'll check the parameters and see if i can improve it a little.

I have a similar problem since upgrading to the first public beta of macOS 10.14.4. The problem still persists today, even after upgrading to the final version of 10.14.4. I can only start my VMs in headless mode, anything else leads to a crash as reported here:

The same here. MacOS 10.13.1. VirtualBox-5.2.22-126460 won't start at all. VirtualBox-6.0.8-130520 works in Headless mode only.
Had to downgrade to version 5.1.4-110228. Works fine.

What happens if you start from the GUI? Details please. A VBox.log would help, and so would the output of:

    kextstat | grep -v com.apple

I was able to solve the problem by re-installing macOS from recovery mode (without erasing the disc).
