I am completely new to Laravel Homestead, and ran into this error after entering "vagrant up", but was able to fix it. I'm posting this to save someone the headache of trying to fix it from scratch.
There was an error while executing `VBoxManage`, a CLI used by Vagrant for controlling VirtualBox. The command and stderr is shown below. Command: ["startvm", "ce468000-7cc4-4175-9368-209a6306fb8d", "--type", "headless"] Stderr: VBoxManage: error: The virtual machine 'Homestead_default_1573634072048_97257' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1 (0x1) VBoxManage: error: Details: code NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005), component MachineWrap, interface IMachine
This error comes from an improper configuration of VirtualBox.
Step one: Run this command to uninstall VirtualBox
sudo apt-get remove --purge virtualbox
Step two: Run these commands to delete all virtual machines and settings and Virtual Hard Drives:
sudo rm ~/"VirtualBox VMs" -Rf sudo rm ~/.config/VirtualBox/ -Rf
Step three: To re-install VirtualBox again. Run this command:
sudo apt-get install virtualbox
sudo ps aux | grep -i "vbox"
Kill any "ghost" processes you may think are relevant.
sudo pkill VBox*
cd Homestead vagrant up
To get vagrant's status run the command below in the Homestead directory:
vagrant -global status
This should get things working again.
My system: Ubuntu 18.04, VirtualBox, Vagrant, PhpStorm, Laravel
