Description Andrew Dahms 2015-10-19 04:34:46 UTC
The following information must be added to the chapter on installing Windows virtual machines in the Virtual Machine Management Guide:

* An introduction that answers the following questions:
  - What does this chapter outline?
  - What are the general steps involved?
  - What does the user end up with at the end?

Creating a Virtual Machine
* Can the opening sentence be changed to something more akin to 'Create a new
  virtual machine and configure the basic options'?
* Can we make the step on setting the Operating System its own step, and made
  a little more specific? E.g. 'select the Windows variant from the...'

Starting the Virtual Machine Using the Run Once Option
* What is the benefit of using the 'Run Once' menu instead of the normal start

Installing Windows on VirtIO-Optimized Hardware
* This topic has been around for a while, and launches straight into an 
  explanation of the VFD, which is a little confusing. Users just need to know
  that it needs to be available, and that it will be made available by an admin.
  Maybe the procedure for uploading it should be made part of the Installation
