Postponed to 5.10 since it seems to be host specific. Probably a setup issue.
This bug was reported by QE (not a customer issue), and this problem only occurs in special environment (boot from pxe server which is in another subnet).
When we install guest by virsh-install, gpxe/tftp environment is established by dnsmasq, it's insider the host. This problem would not occur.
I will try to fix this issue in gpxe with RHEL6.5, and close this etherboot bug.
