I just finished installing Debian-9 Stretch:

Distributor ID: Debian
Description: Debian GNU/Linux 9.0 (stretch)
Release: 9.0
Codename: stretch

After installing VirtualBox 5.1.22 r115126(Qt5.7.1), I created a virtual machine and when it was time to install the OS, I got the error below:


The above could be because Kernel drivers for VirtualBox have not been compiled. Here are the commands to resolve the above issue:

1) sudo apt-get update - I did this much earlier.

2) Install kernekl headers and build tools

- sudo apt-get install build-essential module-assistant
- sudo m-a prepare

3) Compile the virtualbox kernel driver:

command: sudo /sbin/rcvboxdrv setup

All went well in a couple of lines. I shut down and relaunched VirtualBox and all went well.
