So, I have got this shiny new Macbook Pro and installed VirtualBox on it to run some Linux boxes. Here is what I got when trying to start one:

Virtualbox Kernel Driver Not Installed Mac Os

Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908) Make sure the kernel module has been loaded successfully. Where: suplibOsInit what: 3 VERRVMDRIVERNOTINSTALLED (-1908) - The support driver is not installed. On linux, open returned ENOENT. Since you had already downloaded the VirtualBox Mac OS image, select “Create a new virtual hard disk file” with. Ignore the link to the dropbox, i realized i could upload an attachment. Comment:2 Changed 9 months ago by Holland's Office.

The error message is quite vague. It says On Linux, open returned ENOENT. What about on macOS? It turns out that I have to explicitly allow VirtualBox in the macOS system preference.

Go to System Preferences / Security & Privacy.

Click “Allow” in the window below.

Now VirtualBox no longer complains about kernel driver.

Update: some people don’t see this button. According to a comment from Albert Wolszon:

This Allow button section shows up only after first 30 minutes after the installation of VirtualBox. If you have this error and don’t see the button, uninstall VirtualBox, remove its belongings (there are usually some files left) and install it once again, then check this button again.

Thanks for the comments!

Kernel Driver Not Installed (rc=-1908) Mac Os X

I do not know what happened to high sierra. I just updated to high sierra10.13.4 from Yosemite. Since then I can not able to install any software, Not getting the option to allow the software to install in 'Security and Privacy' section.


Virtualbox Kernel Driver Not Installed Mac Big Sur

In Yosemite, I have a good setup for Virtual Box and Ubuntu, but after updating to high sierra, while I run ubuntu images it says Kernel driver not installed. I reimaged everything but no luck, Uninstalled Virtualbox, but now cannot be able to install it again, though, after false installation, I am able to get the virtual box icon in the Applications folder.


But I really need to run my ubuntu images on the virtual box. I tried a lot of options but nothing worked.

Please help me on this, it's really urgent.
