Virtualbox pxe-boot client fail


I am having problems to pxe-boot a virtual machine on virtualbox. I have installed virtualbox-4.1.14 from SlackBuilds.org and by now I have gained ample experience, but I cannot overcome this hurdle. I chose Bridge Network and I tried all the NIC cards on the menu with no success. Has anybody found a solution to this?

Are you running the pxe on another VM or are you running the pxe from another host ?

I have done both and installed without fail .

Did you install vbox extensions ?

Regards

Lawrence

I installed vbox extensions as instructed from here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/VirtualBox_Extras and now I can boot from pxe-boot. I am running both pxe-server and pxe-client on virtualbox on the same host simply for academic purposes.

Thanks a lot for your hint.
