Ubuntu: VirtualBox can't open Windows 7


I downloaded a Windows 7 iso, created the VM for it, and it won't open. I get the following error box:

Failed to open a session for the virtual machine VeenDoze.

The virtual machine 'VeenDoze' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1 (0x1).

Result Code: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005) Component: MachineWrap Interface: IMachine {f30138d4-e5ea-4b3a-8858-a059de4c93fd}

And if that weren't annoying enough, I can't get rid of Virtual Box. I've tried uninstalling through terminal and software center and it won't go away.

Running Ubuntu 15.04 Unity


Seen the same issue, fixed it by running:

sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup  

After this the VM was able to boot.


Running Ubuntu 16.04, you'll have to run this script if you update the kernel

sudo /sbin/rcvboxdrv setup
