Description of problem:
Currently you can not PXE boot a paravirtualized guest machine with neither virt-manager or virt-install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to use virt-install to PXE boot a guest.
[root@buffalo ~]# virt-install -n test -r 1024 -f /usr/pic1/Images/test -s 60 -m 00:16:3E:10:3F:64 --pxe
Network PXE boot is not support for paravirtualized guests
To see a brand new guest PXE booting away.
Since the error says paravirtualized guests are not supported I'm guessing fully virtualized guests are. It would be nice to see that same functionality with PV guests.
