    I am using a bridge connection in Virtual Box>> connecting the internet thru ethernet cable.

    The first image you posted shows the window in VirtualBox when you click the Machine tab at the top of its window and then click Settings. You should not need to do that to access the internet. I've never had to and have been able to access the internet. Its purpose as I understand is for sharing between the VBox guest and host systems. The third image you posted has a number of errors which say "Read-only fllesystem" which would indicate to me that you are running the iso of Arch in VBox because the iso is Read-Only. That would be one reason why you get those messages. Either that or something went wrong with the install in VBox. I've never used Arch so I don't know what one would expect to see during a successful installation but an installed system would definitely not be "Read-only".
