linux - Virtualbox shared folder mounting not working - Super User
Curiously, just tried the same thing with Kubuntu 14.04 (host) on Mint 17.1 (guest), and got the same error.

The fix was to do this (as per this post):

sudo ln -f -s /opt/VBoxGuestAdditions-4.3.10/lib/VBoxGuestAdditions/mount.vboxsf /sbin/mount.vboxsf
Then manually add your user to the vboxsf group (as per dot point 2 in this answer):

sudo usermod -a -G vboxsf <username>
Reboot the guest, and then try the mount command again:

sudo mount -t vboxsf <share name> <mount dir>

networking - PXE boot with Virtualbox - Server Fault
The PXEboot server that VirtualBox's (default) NAT network interface communicates with is built-in, that's why the filename it looks for matches the name of the VM.

I set up a bridged adapter (br0) using the instructions here ( and told the VirtualBox VM to use that instead. Then everything worked fine.
After clarification, not using VirtualBox's built-in PXE feature at all seems the way to go. Instead, assign a secondary NIC with "host only" or "internal" networking to server and client, and bind the DHCP server to listen at the second interface. Do not use Intel cards for the second interface: PXE Booting Virtualbox guests in internal networking mode?

Answer to VirtualBox NAT and PXE:

vmname.pxe contains the code your VM runs after downloading it, the so called NBP (Network Bootstrap Program)
