First off, I created my account first. Then I downloaded the link from this site (non-vm). I installed Boinc and its directory to a secondary drive 'D' which is a 1TB SSD "samsung". I have windows 10 Pro. However, attempting to sync the Boinc manager with SU leads to an error which is, "Failed to update account manager", really vague. So I remove the account and attempt to manually log in to SU. Now I get this error, "Failed to add account manager".

So I am basically stuck at trying to talk to SU.

Never heard of having any problem d/ling and installing Boinc but to try again do a clean install by removing all Boinc files you have and just d/l this and when its finished just run through the install and that is basically just hitting the next tab until it is finished and then when the box pops up click on *Advanced View and there should be the Boinc page and from there you pick a project to join with the Tools tab at the top of that Boinc box.

Then it asks if you are a new member or a returning member so click that and sign in your email account and password you want to use and finish the rest of the steps and then you will see that project on the Boinc Projects page and just highlight that and click the Update tab and it will start d/ling the project data you have chosen and then start running.

And of course at the Project home page you will Sign Up at the top left of that home page and make your account and do the setting so that you will run the tasks the way you want to run them as fast as cores and jobs and all the rest.

Now VirtualBox is another story and if you want to try those you will have better luck if you d/l the VB version for your OS and the Extension Pack from here

Issue is not with downloading BIONIC.

My issue is Science United is not properly syncing with the BIONIC client.
