This is an interruption trap caused by the ATA disk management from VirtualBox.

That comes from the Linux kernel, as it was running the code at 7f2c48115064 (Instruction Pointer) and the Stack Pointer was pointing at 7f2c22e9ad90 (not that's it's much of help!).

It could either be an actual problem with the disk (or virtual disk) that VBox utilizes, or could be a breakpoint or a voluntary triggered trap set by a developer.

That could also mean there is some config problem (using ATA vs SATA etc...), or the Host preventing the Guest from accessing the resource (disk allocated to VBox), eg an Antivirus, access rights, special flags (chattr), etc.
