You should have stopped right there, at step 1. In the page that you linked, there is the following warning:

VirtualBox 4.3.x is no longer supported!

The last release of the 4.3.x series (4.3.40) was on 2016-08-22, a month before OSX 10.12 came out. And the one you tested (4.3.32) came out 2015-10-15, almost a year before 10.12. You can't expect VirtualBox to support newer OSes retroactively, right?
