Boot failed. EFI DVD/CDROM - message before a successful boot

Reported by: Leonid Dorogin Owned by:
Component: EFI Version: VirtualBox 5.1.8
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: Linux Host type: Mac OS X

Description

VirtualBox 5.1.8 with the extension pack installed on macOS Sierra 10.12.1 host. The guest machine is Arch Linux with the standard kernel, and systemd EFI bootloader. /EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.EFI is present on the EFI partition. EFI firmware is enabled in the VM.

Before a successful boot, the following message is shown shortly: "Boot failed. EFI DVD/CDROM"

Changing boot order and disabling booting from optical drive have no effect on this.

This is still present in VB 5.1.28 It seems that EFI dont READ the boot order settings, but simply insists on trying the DVD before the harddisk.

It should of course respect the boot order from settings.

I am also hitting this issue on VB 5.1.26 and 5.2.6

It's also worth noting that using the firmware to set the boot order via: Boot Maintenance Manager > Boot Options > Change Boot Order will fix the issue on reboots, but after a shutdown and power on, the problem appears again.

It would seem like the VB firmware does not properly implement EFI Boot Management Variables (as the variables do not persist).
