It will work until the point where you try to start a VM in Sculpt,
which will not run because VirtualBox don't support nested virtualization.

This is a normal message if you have no IOMMU support, which virtualbox
doesn't provide to guests. You may just ignore (and we have to silence
the output in the future.)

It sounds like the issue reported in - unfortunately there
has been no solution for ICH9 and network, but a quirk for PCIIX3 and
network exists. Maybe you can report there your findings, if you have
some news.
