Ticket #20177 (new defect)

NtCreateFile(\Device\VBoxDrvStub) failed

Reported by: JochenW Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 6.1.18
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: other


Did the following:

1.) Downloaded the latest 6.1 test build from, and installed it.

In VBoxHardening.log, this build is identified as

10.0.19041.662 (WinBuild.160101.0800)

2.) Created a new, blank VM, and attempted to boot that VM via the Iso file


3.) Started the VM, got the error message

1d38.32f4: NtCreateFile(\Device\VBoxDrvStub) failed: 0xc0000034 STATUS_OBJECT_NAME_NOT_FOUND (0 retries)

Driver is probably stuck stopping/starting. Try 'sc.exe query vboxdrv' to get more information about its state. Rebooting may actually help.

I'll attach the VBoxHardening.log.

No need to create a separate ticket for this, do you have by UEFI Secure Boot enabled by chance? Testbuilds don't work with it as stated here.

    they will not work (the error message will point to unsigned drivers) ... if your system
    has UEFI secure boot enabled

Have to admit, I didn't consider that to be applicable here. In the log file, there's nothing with "unsigned".
