It could be one of these problems

  1. Reboot your physical machine and go in your BIOS at start.

    Enable Intel VT (Virtualization Technology) or AMD-V (AMD Virtualization)

    depending on your processor's type.

  2. Run VirtualBox.exe, click Settings, select System in the left pane then go in

    Processor tab.

    Check Enable PAE/NX.

  3. This message could mean that you are trying to run a 64 Bits operating system with a

    non 64-Bits compatible processor.

    Recreate your Live USB using a standard 32 Bits ISO instead of a 64 Bits one.

hope it helps
