Hello to everyone.

This is my second attempt to be able to boot an OS with Virtualbox. I'm
trying to boot a Linux and a Windows 11 DVD. I've followed different
tutorials,such as :

but I still haven't been able to accomplish this task. I have also
installed bhyve.

# pkg install virtualbox-ose

# added the following line to /boot/loader.conf :

# vboxdrv_load="YES"

# added the following to /etc/rc.conf :

# pw groupmod vboxusers -m marietto

# chown root:vboxusers /dev/vboxnetctl

# chmod 0660 /dev/vboxnetctl

To make this permissions change permanent, added these lines to
/etc/devfs.conf :

own vboxnetctl root:vboxusers
perm vboxnetctl 0660

# pw groupmod operator -m marietto

Added the following to /etc/devfs.rules :

add path 'usb/*' mode 0660 group operator

To load these new rules, added the following to /etc/rc.conf:


Restarted devfs:

# service devfs restart

Enabled it in /etc/rc.conf and started it if it is not already running:


# service hald start

hald does not exist in /etc/rc.d or the local startup
directories (/usr/local/etc/rc.d), or is not executable

# kldstat |grep vmmon

# kldstat | grep vmm
10 1 0xffffffff8288d000 583d30 vmm.ko

This is how I have configured the various settings on the GUI :

as u can see it won't boot. I always see a black screen inside the
Virtualbox window.
