One thing is special about this Windows 7 PC: It uses UEFI.
All the other dozens of my Windows 7 PCs, where VirtualBox works like
a charm, all use BIOS.
Maybe some kind of security properties do differ somehow.
A service was installed in the system.
Service Name: VBox Support Driver
Service File Name: C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\VBoxDrv.sys
Service Type: kernel mode driver
Service Start Type: demand start
The VBox Support Driver service failed to start due to the following error:
The system cannot find the file specified.
In reality the driver file exists:
yet, it is completely absent from Windows Device Manager (driver list).
So the driver was copied, but not installed.
