Hi Sergei,

I'm closing this bug as a duplicate of this bug, as it is the same error:

This seems to be a VirtualBox bug where the Kernel driver is not installed or loaded successfully. The other user who reported it managed to fix it by reinstalling VirtualBox. We are looking into whether we can fix it in XAP for a future update.
