Description Leonid Natapov 2013-09-23 09:55:51 EDT
boot option in vm.conf file is not compatible anymore with devices syntax specification. Therefore VM won't start with message "missing boot disk".
Comment 1 Sandro Bonazzola 2013-09-23 09:59:20 EDT
as temporary workaround just remove boot= line.
Comment 2 Sandro Bonazzola 2013-09-23 10:30:12 EDT
Quoting danken about the issue:
 boot={c,d,n} was always limited to cdrom, drives, and network
 being unable to specify WHICH of them.

So the setup utility must add bootOrder:1 in the device configuration for selecting the boot media.
Comment 4 Sandro Bonazzola 2013-09-24 09:54:16 EDT
Merged upstream master and 1.0 branch.

hosted engine is a new package, does not need errata for specific bugs during its development.
