This warning does nothing more than stating that Oracle have not acquired a certificate for the drivers they install.
Nothing to worry about, just continue the installation.

TobiSGD is correct that you normally do not have anything to worry about. As a rule, have a backup and know how to use it.

I can't say what the issue is with two installs, do you mean they both asked you the same question and warning?

Virtualbox ought to install correctly. Microsoft offers a similar virtual machine app for xp that might be used. I have used it too for a very long time without issues. Virtualbox and VMplayer may be the two common ones for first time use.
