NAT PXE Boot won't work

Hi, I want to do a PXE boot via NAT. It seems very simple but it doesn't work. I already created the folder TFTP and copied a syslinux bootloader in it and configured the right menu. I get the Bootmenu if i preform a networkboot in the virtual machine. The last message of the log is that the machine gets an IP Adress from the DHCP Server (NAT). The NFS Server runs on the server that is located in the same LAN but i cannot peform a boot over the network. When i select an operating system nothing happens the screen just flickers.

I know that there are several posts with a similar problem but none helped me.
