    Hi Sachin,

    To get past this error you need to select (not start) the Sandbox vm in the list, then go to Machine -> Settings -> System -> Acceleration and check both checkboxes there.

    Thanks for trying Hortonworks Sandbox,
    Ted.

    Hi Sachin,

    What is the processor on the computer that you are trying to run the sandbox on?

    Thanks,
    Ted.

    Hi Sachin,

    Ok, then check in the bios settings on your computer, virtualization support is probably turned off.

    Thank,
    Ted.
