Please provide a VM log file. Make sure the VM is fully shut down, then right click it in the manager UI. Select "Show Log" and save "VBox.log" (no other file) to a zip file. Attach the zip here.

Before you start, please enable additional PXE logging using "VBoxManage modifyvm <vm> --biospxedebug on".

Btw, I assume that you provided the vmname.pxe file required by this feature. I see that it's required for NAT, you do not mention your network mode.

VirtualBox and the VirtualBox Extension Pack (EP) are different versions (in contrast to what you wrote before). Please uninstall the currently installed EP and install the matching version.

You're right. I'm now using the last version of EP however the problem still exists.
