VirtualBox 5.1 on CnetOS 7 - Guru Meditation

Hi, I have a droplet with 2CPU/2GBRAM. I installed VirtulBox 5.1 (before that I installed GUI and VNC server) there based on this tutorial:

But still not able to start VM. I Immediately got “Guru Meditation” status on her.

Is it even still possible to run VirtualBox on DigitalOcean Droplets

Here is the log:

We strongly recommend against running virtualization software within your droplets. As droplets themselves are KVM virtual machines you are likely to see issues and extremely poor performance from attempting nested virtualization. That being said, without having encountered these exact error messages before myself, based on the language, my first troubleshooting step would be to reduce the memory allocation for the VM to the bare minimum to see if this resolves the memory error reported.
