Description Roman Plevka 2017-09-07 10:02:34 UTC
Users very often try to provision RHEL 6 with Grub2 in UEFI which leads to boot loading errors (bacically Grub2 prompt or kernel panic).

We need a warning next to PXE Loader flag in the UI if there is known combination of OS and loader that does not work. These currently are:

* RHEL 6.x and Grub2
* RHEL 7.x and Grub1
* Ubuntu 10.x or older and Grub2
* Ubuntu 11.x or newer and Grub1
* Debian 2-6 and Grub2
* Debian 7+ and Grub1

This can be as simple as regular expression and a warning message showing up next to the field in the UI. No actions must be taken. A global setting should be present which will turn this feature of in case user do not want to see these warnings.
