I'm looking to PXE Boot VirtualBox for MacOS Lion in a way similar to described with VMware Fusion here: http://fritshoogland.wordpress.com/2009/12/17/pxe-boot-in-vmware-fusion-using-host-only-adapter/

Is there a way to do so?

I'm assuming you got it working since you accepted the answer. What did you finally end up doing? The answer suggested a few general possibilities... – Sean DeNigris Feb 26 '13 at 21:23

Your problem description is much too short - we need more information about your VB setup, the problem you encounter and the VB log.

I do not have your environment, but ensure that :

  • VirtualBox Extension Pack is installed and use PXE with E1000 network card support.
  • Use AMD network adapters in the VM (not Intel) and bridge it to the host adapter.

Without more information, the most I can do is supply some helpful pointers :

PXE Booting in VirtualBox
VirtualBox PXE Boot or VirtualBox PXE / TFTP
