Host - Windows 7 32bit Guest - Windows 7 32bit

I successfully install Windows 7 as a guest operating for development purpose.Installation went fine without error so I can boot properly and get into the desktop. So I just installed guest additions without direct 3D check then after reboot before boot screen, VM display error message "FATAL: Cannot read from the boot medium! System halted.".I checked storage and remove DVD drive and floppy and reselect my virtual hard disk but nothing changed. What should I do?

The first thing to do is to attach the VBox.log file of the last session of this VM.

Sorry for the late response, I missed the ticket update. Your VBox.log file clearly shows that the hard disk is not selected as boot device. Right now it can only boot from the (virtual) CD/DVD device. So just change your VM settings and enable booting from the hard disk.
