hi Vineela,

Looks like the virtualization is not enabled in BIOS. here is one way of enabling in BIOS.

Open BIOS during system startup -> Goto "Advanced" -> Virtualization and select "Enabled" if its not so.

Also when you open the Virtualbox you can goto "Settings" -> "System" -> "Acceleration" and select both the options available in "Hardware Virtualization" section.

Let me know if this works
