### FATAL: Could not read from the boot medium! System halted
![no-boot-medium-display](assets/vm_error_no_boot_medium-1.png)
This issue often happens if you tried to install `VBoxGuestAdditions`. The
tools provided by VirtualBox are given as an ISO file. When you try to install
the tools, the ISO will replace your boot device.
To fix this issue, you need to re-attach the original boot device to your VM.
Go into your VM settings (`Settings -> Storage`)
!!! warning
Be careful ! You should only edit the `Controller: IDE` section of the Storage settings.
In the `Controller: IDE` section, you will either see nothing or the `VBoxGuestAdditions` iso.
##### `Controller: IDE` section is empty

Choose the iso called `PIE-disk001.iso`, it should have a size of ~1MB.
