@Inam Ur Rehman

1. You need to reboot your system and go in bios and enable it from there which is required for Virtual Machine to run.

2. In virtual machine click on VM Settings -> System -> you will see "Hardware Virtualization"

pls enable it. 3333-screen-shot-2016-04-09-at-45848-pm.png

@Inam Ur Rehman - You wont be able to run latest version of sandbox with 4G RAM. You can try older version though
