[ipxe-devel] iSCSI boot problem

Hello all,

I have used Virtualbox to installed Fedora 14 in an iSCSI target at localhost 
(iqn.2007-08.localhost:iscsiboot).  (Many thanks to mcb30's help!)  After iPXE 
starts up, I entered:

iPXE> dhcp
DHCP (net0 08:00:27:45:a1:d6).... ok
iPXE> sanboot iscsi:localhost::::iqn.2007-08.localhost:iscsiboot

Virtualbox appears to have found and loaded the iSCSI target, but after a few 
seconds virtualbox shows: "Unable to locate IOAPIC." (see attached screenshot 
for more detail).  Then, virtualbox shows:  "No root device found" and "Boot has 
failed, sleeping forever."  

What could be the problem??  Thanks very much!
