    Hi,

    When I try to start the SandBox2.1 in the Oracle VM VirtualBox, I get this error message:
    Failed to open a session for the virtual machine Hortonworks Sandbox 2.1.

    The virtual machine ‘Hortonworks Sandbox 2.1’ has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1.

    Result Code: E_FAIL (0x80004005)
    Component: Machine
    Interface: IMachine {480cf695-2d8d-4256-9c7c-cce4184fa048}

    How to fix it?

    I tried downloading the sandbox using firefox and I was able to start it in VM. The problem you are having might be that you are downloading with the latest version of chrom or ie, try firefox and see if it helps.

    For running on windows 8 : right click on the VirtualBox and run as administrator. That should resolve access issue to kernel. This will probably work on older versions as well.
