Hi Heinz, I'm pretty sure the version of VirtualBox on SBo (6.1.34) is borked for some particular Windows version, I had endless problems until I updated to virtualbox-6.1.40 from your repo. I think at a minimum the soon to be EOL(?) 6.x branch should be updated to the latest, just for compatibility. As for 7.x, if you're not up for it right now then I suppose someone else could submit a VirtualBox 7.x build script if they really cared to.
