    After I install Oracle Virtual box, I tried installing sand box.
    After completing the installation steps, when I try to start the machine, I am getting bellow error..
    “VT-x features locked or unavailable in MSR.

    Can some one help me to resolve this issue?

    Your computer either doesn’t support 64 bit VMs or the support is disabled in your computer’s BIOS. You can try booting into your BIOS and seeing if it has virtualization settings you can enable. You will need to refer to your manufacturer’s guides for any additional details.
