Running the latest version of VB from the wiki, and I get this error when trying to run a Windows 10 64 bit virtualbox:

Failed to open a session for the virtual machine MSEdge - Win10_preview.
The virtual machine 'MSEdge - Win10_preview' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1 (0x1).
Result Code: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
Component: MachineWrap
Interface: IMachine {b2547866-a0a1-4391-8b86-6952d82efaa0}

I then get another popup telling me:

The VirtualBox Linux kernel driver (vboxdrv) is either not loaded or there is a permission problem with /dev/vboxdrv. Please reinstall the kernel module by executing /sbin/vboxconfig as root.
where: suplibOsInit what: 3 VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_INSTALLED (-1908) - The support driver is not installed. On linux, open returned ENOENT. `

Hopefully any of you can help.

  • Did you try enabling insecure boot? – M. Becerra Oct 28 '16 at 10:31
  • @M.Becerra I guess you mean disabling secure boot. – Ceda EI Oct 28 '16 at 12:42
  • As per the popup did you try running sudo /sbin/vboxconfig – Ceda EI Oct 28 '16 at 12:43
  • Also was the Virtual Machine working before? – Ceda EI Oct 28 '16 at 12:43

    @M.Becerra Disabling secure boot did the trick. I didn't expect it to; thanks! – Phoen1x74 Oct 28 '16 at 21:26
