(Running VirtualBox in a Xen environment is not supported)

so took a look to make sure my headers where correct..

root@(none):/home/loren# uname -a

Linux (none) 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.63-2+deb7u2 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Any suggestions on how to fix this or get around this just to host my little windows box for my personal game server?

Unfortunately there is no support for VirtualBox running on Xen.

While X is not technically a requirement for Wine, it is required in practice - at least for now.

Sorry :(

wow… Ok Was really hoping that some one out there had a work around on this project..
