virtualbox error 1912

Asked by Sharon Mack on 2012-07-12

Failed to open a session for the virtual machine My XP.

The virtual machine 'My XP' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1.

Result Code: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
Component: Machine
Interface: IMachine {5eaa9319-62fc-4b0a-843c-0cb1940f8a91}

After clicking on the ok button in the error box this other box comes up with the following message:

RTR3Init failed with rc=-1912 (rc=-1912)

The VirtualBox kernel modules do not match this version of VirtualBox. The installation of VirtualBox was apparently not successful. Executing

'/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup'

may correct this. Make sure that you do not mix the OSE version and the PUEL version of VirtualBox.

I did the copy paste '/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup' to the terminal but the following happened:

smack@smack-laptop:~$ /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
 * Stopping VirtualBox kernel modules
 * Cannot unload module vboxnetadp

Then after looking through the virtualbox error problem posts I did the following:

~$ sudo apt-get install dkms

And got:

Line 8 says "Need to get OB of archives. After unpacking OB will be used.
My problem is that I don't know what OB means and how to get it in order to move on to the next step. Although I really don't know what that next step would be. I just reading other's solutions and seeing which ones closely resemble my problem and trying the instructions and see what happens. I am clueless when it comes to knowing how to give commands that are recognizable, so I need step by step instructions. Thank for taking the time to help.

I still need to know what the following means please: "Need to get OB of archives. After unpacking OB will be used." I need to first find this OB it's telling me to get in order for me to see what happens next. If not then I'll just try to look for answers on how to uninstall the VirtualBox it's just stressing me out...not to mention my computer is running real slow, taking long to load pages on the web.

Hey!! I went ahead and reinstalled VirtualBox 4.1 and NOW IT'S WORKING! Thanks Jeet, the site was helpful in that I saw that I could download the VB just to see if whatever wasn't working on the first download would be corrected on the second download. I am so glad that problem is solved. On to the next one....LOL!
