Ticket #13628 (closed enhancement: fixed)
iPXE ROM missing HTTP feature
|Reported by:||linuxgod||Owned by:|
The iPXE ROM that is used in recent versions of VirtualBox has a limited feature set. Whereas we use iPXE with HTTP to build thousands of servers, the built-in iPXE ROM lacks this feature. Therefore when booting a VM, iPXE fails with "Could not start download: Operation not supported ( http://ipxe.org/3c092003)".
While there is a workaround of installing the VirtualBox Extensions Pack and then using the Intel PXE ROM instead of iPXE, this problem could be easily resolved by enabling the HTTP feature in the iPXE ROM.
