Hi @mito_O

Did you verify the installer?

EDITED…
E:\Whonix>gpg --verify-options show-notations --verify Whonix-Gateway-13.0.0.1.4.ova.asc Whonix-Gateway-13.0.0.1.4.ova
gpg: conversion from utf-8' toCP720’ not available

gpg: Can’t check signature: No public key

tried also to delete .VirtualBox folder & VirtualBox vms folder
uninstalling VirtualBox & reinstalling it

won’t help ,

if you could provide a torrent file for both gateway & workstation that would be awesome …

HI @mito_O

You should not use the installer unless less you can verify it.

https://whonix.org/wiki/Installer/Verify_the_Installer_using_the_command_line

That was going to be my next suggestion. : )

Sorry, don’t have one.

My suggestion would be to remove the Whonix part of your question as per the

https://whonix.org/wiki/Support#Free_Support_Principle

You may want to start off by trying to import a non-whonix VM into Vbox.

Also https://forums.virtualbox.org/ would be a good place to find additional help with your problem.
