OVM3: Error Boot loader didn't return any data trying to create PVM guests

588514 Newbie
Currently Being Moderated
Hi all,

I am trying to build a pvm guest on OVM3.

I have the OEL5 iso available as ftp://172.30.2.29/oracle_linux/x86_64/5.8/V31120-01-OracleLinux-R5-U8-Server-x86_64-dvd.iso

So I create a new VM, I choose it to be an "oracle Linux 5", PVM guest, I want the boot options to be "network" first and "disk" as second option.
I put ftp://172.30.2.29/oracle_linux/x86_64/5.8/V31120-01-OracleLinux-R5-U8-Server-x86_64-dvd.iso in the network boot path and, when I start the vm, i got the error "Boot loader didn't return any data" (see the log below).

What am I doing wrong?
thanks for every answer!

Andrea
