Hi Self study support team,
I use MacOS(mojave) and Virtualbox Player. and i am trying to install Pega 8.1 OVA file in VirtualBox player as per Pega 8 CSA course, but it is throwing error "Kernel not loaded" and unable to start virtual machine..
Can you please let me understand in which way i can resolve this issue. Please find attached errors.

the terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1 is because you have the VM loaded twice and this is confusing VirtualBox.
the kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908) error is because you most likely have not explicitly allowed VirtiualBox in your Mac's System Preferences.
In VirtualBox, delete that second copy of the VM - it's useless and will only cause you grief. Then, quit VB.
Then, go to your System Preferences > Security & Privacy settings. Under General, check for an entry for System software from developer "Oracle....." was blocked from loading. Click the Allow button. Open VB again and try to start the VM.
If the Allow button is not there (it generally only displays for the first 30 mins), uninstall VB, then reinstall it and launch it. Then immediately go to your Security & Privacy settings and Allow the app to run.
