I recently upgraded to Virtual Box 2.2.2 after fighting through some installation issues while my CheckPoint SecuRemote VPN client was installed into my Windows XP SP3 machine. The first issue was that the installer would always blue screen of death in the fw.sys immediately after popping up a dialog box that I needed to terminate the fwkern.exe process.

Both fw.sys and fwkern.exe are related to the CheckPoint VPN-1, so I completely uninstalled CheckPoint VPN-1, rebooted, completely un-installed the failed VirtualBox 2.2.2 installation, rebooted, then installed VirtualBox 2.2.2 successfully, rebooted, installed CheckPoint SecuRemote VPN-1 successfully, and rebooted again.

Upon launching Virtual Box, I deleted my windows guest entry and created a new one, selecting the old VDI disk. I set the network to Bridged to my wired ethernet adapter, and I receive "VERR_SUPDRV_COMPONENT_NOT_FOUND" consistently.

This seems not to be CheckPoint related. Without it, VirtualBox is also givin that error message when using a bridge attachment.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to worksforme

The reason was most likely that the Windows host driver for bridged networking / host-only networking was not properly installed. Uninstalling + re-installing VBox should solve the problem.
