Issue/Introduction

Initial boot of Reporter 10 virtual appliance returns an error that it cannot find an OS to boot to.

Cause

In most cases, this is being caused by the boot mode of the virtual machine being set to "BIOS".  All Symantec Network Protection virtual appliances must use EFI to boot.
 

Resolution

Change the boot mode of the virtual machine to use EFI.

  • Edit the virtual machine and go into the options
  • Select "Advanced" options
  • Select "Boot with EFI instead of BIOS"
