comment Is there any method in domain network that only prevent “ local users account(clients local user) ” log on?
The "deny local logon" group policy is used when you want to have a local machine user account that is active and can log in to the machine over the network but cannot log in at the console. Is that really what you want in this case?

comment Put computer to sleep, leave for 2+ hours, come back and its shutdown and won't turn on
Ok, based on the GPU powering on but not the power supply fan it's kind of ambiguous whether the power supply is actually on or not. You haven't ruled anything out. This is the stage where I usually try to add components one by one to see if something specific is making the power supply (or motherboard power logic) refuse to start.

Does the power supply have a fan that's not spinning when you try to turn it on?

When I have a problem that seems like it might be a system going to sleep and not coming back, I generally turn the display, HD, and computer sleep timers off to see if that's a factor.

comment PXE TFTP Permission Denied
You mentioned just using tftp.exe to test the tftp server; if you do that from a different VM and attempt to get that same "windows xp server edition.pxe" file does it get the same error?

comment PXE TFTP Permission Denied
Okay. At the risk of stating the obvious, if the virtual machine running the TFTP server is using VirtualBox NAT, you'll need to port forward the appropriate ports for TFTP (UDP/69 and TCP/8099) if you want things outside to be able to connect to it. You can do that with the Settings -> Network -> Port Forwarding button, and then add a row for each port, with the same host and guest ports, and you normally don't have to fill in the Guest IP.

comment PXE TFTP Permission Denied
"I cant seem to locate the .pxe image, apparently its in the same folder as virtualbox.xml but I cant find that either. (on the host)" It sounds like you're confused... you put a pxe file in the same folder as virtualbox.xml for VirtualBox's NAT to serve to the VMs. But you've set up your own TFTP server so presumably you don't want to use VirtualBox's NAT?

comment Accessing a website through its IP address instead of hostname
As JakeGould pointed out, the 403 here is a significant piece of information. It's probably giving us a clue about how their server is configured: serverfault.com/questions/610305/…

Server: nginx/1.7.8 Perhaps the server is actually nginx?
