Unspecified error when attempting to connect to test target machine

I am in desperate need of a solution to this problem. I had problems with my simple driver and I was originally very angry, but this is fucking unacceptable. When I try to connect to the vm, the connection fails and an error appears: unspecified error 0x80004005. Why can’t I connect to virtual box? It was working before

    I feel, your pain, and understand your anger. Welcome to "test in production"

    I have absolutely no first hand experience of virtual box, but I have encountered enough customer issues which were inexplicable except that it was v box so I’ll admit to a certain prejudice.

    But anyway, connecting how? USB? Network? Serial? Something else (like KDVM) ? Not that knowing that will give me any leads, but it might help the ones who hang out in here who really speak windbg fluently...
