PXE does not work with virtio

Reported by: Luiz Angelo Daros de Luca Owned by:
Component: network Version: VirtualBox 3.1.0
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: Linux



If virtio-net is used, PXE does not work. It fails with the error:

Unknown Ethernet controller! Aborting PXE boot...

The workarround is to revert to the old nic (intel/pcnet)

It is not related to Linux host. It is related to lack of VirtIO network PXE ROM. All hosts affected.
