The problem is when I try to boot into the installed system I get the message - FATAL: Could not read from the boot medium! System halted. If I attach install-amd64-minimal-20161020.iso to Controller: IDE, it will boot into the ISO where I can then chroot into the installed system, which is confusing me. I created a dynamically allocated VDI (VirtualBox Disk Image) and it is attached to Controller: SATA.

Would I have better luck creating a VHD (Virtual Hard Disk), or maybe fixed size storage instead of dynamically allocated storage?

You can post output of command
Code:
$ vboxmanage showvminfo "name of your vm"
