While trying booting Virtual machine on network (PXE Boot) in Oracle VirtualBox its shows Fatal Error: Could not read from the boot medium! System halted.

I have been configuring PXE Server to boot the servers and install operating system on internet. To test the configured server I have used Oracle Virtual Box (with network bridge with local system).

PXE boot and Virtual box was setup properly but when I tried to boot the Virtual Machine on Network it gave error “FATAL: Could not read from the boot medium! System halted.” on the console.

fatal error 300x194 VirtualBox PXE BOOT: FATAL: Could not read from the boot medium! System halted.

The VM was not even able to connect the DHCP server configured on PXE server as in such configuration Guest System try to fetch IP from DHCP servers. After doing lot of research I found a bug report (id: 6330) on virtual box site. So I changed the Network >> Adapter Type from “Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop” to “PCnet-FAST III” from VM Settings.

About This Blog

The Windows Registry is a database which stores settings and options for Microsoft Windows operating systems. It contains normally information and settings for hardware, operating system software, most non-operating system software, and per-user settings. Registry is used to optimize the security, enhance the functionality, modify the functioning of any software OR settings and many more.

In this blog I have tried to collect all the tweaks and hacks available on various website. I have tested many of these hacks before posting but still I would suggest you to take backup of your registry before trying any of these tweaks and if anything goes wrong while trying these hacks I or this blog will not be held responsible.
