Everything in Virtual Box has to be set up just right.

Do you mean you downloaded a virtualbox image and imported that into virtualbox, then when you tried to boot the machine you got that error. Am I understanding that correctly? What virtualbox image did you download?

Before you set up your virtual machine did you check the integrity of the Linux .iso and than succesfully installed Linux?

No i don't know about the integrity. How should i proceed? Please guide me
Go to the page where you downloaded your Linux distro.
On that page somewhere it should show a md5sum or an sha1sum that you can check it.

Once you know the md5sum or sha signature you can run it in the terminal to see if the signatures match. IF they don't match your .iso image is corrupt:-

What distro did you download?

What operating system is on your host machine?
