It seems that you have Hyper-V enabled. Do you see the "slow" icon (Image) in the status bar?

Look in the "Control Panel" » "Programs and Features" » "Turn Windows features on or off", and make sure that the none of the following are active:
  • Hyper-V
  • Virtual Machine Platform
  • Windows Hypervisor Platform
If VirtualBox is running without Hyper-V enabled, where proper, hardware virtualization is actually available, then the standard virtualization icon (Image) would show. Disable Hyper-V in your host and see what happens...

PS. For future reference, next time please downsize your attached images by 50% (at least), or simply change the DPI to 72. Not everyone has the luxury of a HiDPI display ;)

As I mentioned, it launches, but it's really slow. If you leave it for 3-4 days it will run... ;)

Since you asked the question, I've added a couple of items on the "to check" list. But Microsoft keeps adding things on that list, so it may very well be not complete:
  • Application Guard
  • Credential Guard
  • Device Guard
  • <any> * Guard
  • Containers
  • Hyper-V
  • Virtual Machine Platform
  • Windows Hypervisor Platform
  • Windows Sandbox
That's all I have. For the moment...

my computer is Windows 10 1809 (OS build17763.557).
virtualbox is 6.0.8 r130520 (Qt5.6.2)
let me describe.
After using Hyper-v then i want to run Virtualbox but fail so i'm searching in Google to fix it, i do allthing i can found then i can run virtualbox now
after that im running Windows server 2012 r2 then add role" hyper v" but failed( see the attachment picture).
well, i'm seraching google again then everything they support is the same( turn off windows feature hyperv, guard host, containers,... type code in cmd, powershell,..)
i dont know how to fix this, im searching all day in feel hopeless( don't make me reinstall Windows)
bonus: virtualbox run ok, all machine run ok before i turn in Hyper v in windows features

If you're running a Win2012r2 VM, and you want to enable Hyper-V in your VM, you can't. VT-x doesn't get passed through to the guest, unless you are using an AMD CPU and VirtualBox > 6.0.0.

We need to see a complete VBox.log, from a complete VM run, where the problem occurs:
  • Start the VM from cold-boot (not from a paused or saved state) / Observe problem / Shutdown the VM (force close it if you have to).
  • With the VM completely shut down (not paused or saved), right-click on the VM in the VirtualBox Manager and select "Show Log".
  • Save only the first "VBox.log", ZIP it and attach it to your response. See the "Upload attachment" tab below the reply form.

I see from your log that you have an Intel Win10 host and a Win2012server as your guest. I'm afraid I have to ask again; are you getting the error from your guest, that you cannot enable Hyper-V in your guest?

As I said, you can't install Hyper-V inside a guest, it's not supported. VT-x (hardware acceleration) is not available in a guest.

Yes, but VMWare is not VirtualBox. There are lots of things which work in one but not in the other. IF you want nested virtualization, use VMWare.

Or get an AMD CPU! ;)
