^^^ I figured it out myself .

It somehow doesn't boot from local harddisk(Even if it provide you that option when it boots from cd).
So you have to remove the disk after the installation is done.

change the boot order
In that case you won't have to remove the CD as you might require CD for further usage in future.

in your virtual box
Code:
Go to System ---> settings --> check the boot order

Agree but there shouldn't be an option as boot from local drive(i mean whats the use of it when its not going to work)
