Virtualbox Sandbox does not start

Also, the start process hangs at "creating container) and does not progress further.,I imported the virtualbox, but it shows up as Docker Sandbox.

Also please make sure that your Sandbox VM has atleast 8GB RAM allocated to it delicately.

It will be also good to follow the below mentioned Doc toverify if you have missed any steps:
