Cannot start VirtualBox when installed KVM


When you have installed the KVM module, it will conflict with your VirtualBox. To solve it in order to use the VirtualBox, execute the following command below:

1. For Intel CPU

# sudo rmmod kvm-intel

2. For AMD CPU

# sudo rmmod kvm-amd

Then you can start VirtualBox instance normally.
