Background for changing this doc:
On RHV-4.1 the image uploader tool (loading OVA files to RHV) has been dropped. 
CF on RHV users should migrate to use RHV upload API\UI to create disk and then attach it to a VM.

Therefore, for RHV-4.1, the new CF on RHV release format will be qcow,
while the previous format, OVA, will be still provided,
to support RHV-4.0, and bellow (see bug 1410020)

Changes required in the doc:
Based on the above, need to add the doc, that for RHV-4.1, the CF on RHV installation will be by uploading qcow disk on RHV, and then create a VM.
For the VM creation, need to add reference,
to a guide on CFME recommendations for VM parameters such as memory, etc.

RHV-4.0 support this installation flow, as well as the previous one, using the OVA.
RHV-3.6 and bellow support only the previous installation flow.

What we need to do is restructure the section on uploading the image a little so that it provides more information.

First, we need to add an introduction that explains the difference - the image-uploader for 4.0 and earlier, the UI for 4.1 and above.

Second, we need to add a procedure based on the following on how to upload an image via the UI -


We should also take the opportunity to remove the section on using the uploader tool and link to the RHV docs instead -


This would end up looking like the following -

1.2. Uploading the Appliance on Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager
<Current text and new note about versions>
1.2.1. Uploading the Appliance via the Administration Portal
1.2.2. Uploading the Appliance with the Image Uploader
1.2.3. Uploading the Appliance Manually
