I have tryed running VirtualBox after the installation. First I downloaded the rpm from VirtualBox and installed it. While I was installing it says Internal Failure. So I tryed it with dnf. I tryed to install it in thousand other ways now my situation is like this... First command: dnf update Then: dnf search VirtualBox Then it installed VirtualBox-5.1.x86_64 : Oracle VM VirtualBox Version It says Error Summary and i should empty my Cache. When i do it, it does help. It seems like I've installed it like 5 times and now they block eachother. Something with GuestMode seems to block it. Does any body know the problem ?

Remove the package VirtualBox-server first with dnf remove VirtualBox-server. (BTW: Why have you installed VirtualBox-server?)

Remove any VirtualBox packages you've installed.

Remove any VirtualBox repos in: /etc/yum.repos.d/.

Add the VirtualBox.repo file to /etc/yum.repos.d:

sudo tee -a /etc/yum.repos.d/VirtualBox.repo <<'__HERE__'
name=Fedora $releasever - $basearch - VirtualBox

Clean and refresh your dnf repo cache:

sudo dnf clean all
sudo dnf update

Install the latest VirtualBox package (Make sure to accept the GPG key, you should be asked):

sudo dnf install VirtualBox-5.1-5.1.28_117968_fedora25-1.x86_64

Finally, download and install the VirtualBox Extension Pack:

Important: Please install the extension pack with the same version as your installed version of VirtualBox
