After I upgrade my macbook pro(2015mid) to High Sierra, the virtualbox does not work any more. When i start a vm, it alarted "Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)". And when I reinstall virtualbox with pkg, (with or without VirtualBox_Uninstall.tool), the progress failed near finish. install log in attach. Reinstall High Sierra (without format disk) doesn't help. No Button appare in Security & Privacy when installation failed. I found some simular question in tickets and forum, but the solutions does not work at all...

This is not a VirtualBox bug, this is an Apple bug. You should file a bug report with Apple. In the meantime, I found a  workaround, that is also suggested by Apple. Read the whole thread  Virtualbox fails to run on macOS High Sierra - kernel driver not loaded for more information.

Again, I have to reiterate that this is an Apple bug, which I expect it to be fixed (hopefully) by 10.13.1.
