I am trying to start a Ubuntu (64-bit) Linux VM from VirtualBox (5.2.18 r124319 (Qt5.6.3)) on macOS High Sierra (10.13.6 (17G65)) running on a 2016 MacBook Pro 15"
The MacBook Pro in question is recently restored using my Time Machine Backup. I have enabled FileVault on the original MacBook Pro.
Here is the image of the error dialog box:
The text is:
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.
I have enabled disk level encryption when I set up the Linux VM.
Here is some more details of the VM
It is what I picked up from the system.log
Sep 26 10:15:44 konga-mbp-loaner com.apple.xpc.launchd (org.virtualbox.startup): Service exited with abnormal code: 1
What I tried after the Linux VM failed to start:
- I tried to reinstall VirtualBox but the installation failed.
- Restart the machine and try reinstall again, also failed.
