The error message also gives you the answer, you need to install the virtualbox-ose-modules package !
Open a terminal from the main menu and enter the following command :
- Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install virtualbox-ose-modules-2.6.24-16-generic
Change the numbers according to what version of the kernel you are using.

VirtualBox kernel driver not installed. The vboxdrv kernel module was either not loaded or /dev/vboxdrv was not created for some reason. Please install the virtualbox-ose-modules package for your kernel, e.g. virtualbox-ose-modules-generic..
