The issue is not your hardware, but the fact that a single graphics card can only be used a single OS at a time, so the version 2.1 support is coming from a software renderer that uses your CPU like a GPU (not the integrated graphics, the CPU itself) and due to this they only support an old version. Trying to get around this issue by using older OpenGL is just a bad idea all around.

In VirtualBox when you're inside say Ubuntu, need to install guest additions, see here for how:
