Disable boot screen

Is it possible to disable boot screen permanently from virtual machine booting process so I want the host OS to show directly.

Check out these commands in the manual, section 8.8. VBoxManage modifyvm:
Vboxmanage modifyvm "<vmname>" --bioslogofadein on|off
Vboxmanage modifyvm "<vmname>" --bioslogofadeout on|off
Vboxmanage modifyvm "<vmname>" --bioslogodisplaytime <msec>
Vboxmanage modifyvm "<vmname>" --bioslogoimagepath <imagepath>
Vboxmanage modifyvm "<vmname>" --biosbootmenu disabled|menuonly|messageandmenu

These appear to apply only to a particular guest, not globally. You will have to issue the command for each guest.

I have not tried these commands, but I would start with display time set to 0 milliseconds. If this does not work, then I would try:
fade in off, fade out off, display time 1 msec or the minimum allowed, boot menu disabled, and image path set to a completely black image.
