No, that's part of the machine itself, as it's not controllable by the virtual bios I'd surmise it's not possible. I never looked into that (or any other boot device restriction) because I didn't think it was worth it. If they want to fart about and cause delay that's a classroom control issue. (plus we're lucky in that the kids doing computer science or whatever it's called actually seem to want to do it!)

Aye, the less they can break the better, hence the removal of any possible menus and what not from Virtual Box
Quick google around though, have you tried this? (not been on site, unable to test)
If it's doable via UI, it's doable by batch or possibly an edit of the vbox file.
I like the idea of sandboxing all the coding stuff within a VM so wondered if anyone who is experimenting with Virtualbox knows whether Kodu will work within the VM you create?
Kodu isn't really a threat to the network so we run outside. It's quite intensive on graphics too so I don't particularly recommend doing it.
Kodu's a bit different though. It's 3d intensive, and 3D passthrough only vaguely works on some of the workstation level hypervisors like VBox. It's little more than a game making environment.
It's chapter 9.19. Locking down the VirtualBox manager GUI that contains the settings, not chapter 8.26. VBoxManage getextradata/setextradata.

Quick question to those who have successfully created a Vbox image. How are you deploying it? Are you building it into your current windows image and deploying via MDT/WDS? We are working from a virtual image (to enable rollback etc) of windows 7. If I try to install vbox inside that I am guessing it wont work?
Ours is manually copied (a bit lazy!). Couldn't seem to get a deployable package to work. Virtual Box is MSI'd and deployed easily but the image (which for us was 9GB, just changed to 15GB after having installed Visual Studio 2013) is manual. May script it but for the sake of 60 PC's it doesn't take long to copy thanks to impero & mimic scripts
