Description Paolo Bonzini 2013-05-13 17:19:09 EDT
The iPXE ROMs in RHEL7.0 should not include a UEFI driver; we do not ship OVMF and cannot support them.

This basically means reverting upstream commit c45e5b5b30ac1f5505725a7b36e68cedfce4f01f.

   For the bug verification ,does it will be blocked by Bug 895959 - [Tracker] provide RHEL-specific machine types in QEMU.

Hi Paolo,

This issue has 2 bzs. One this against qemu-kvm component, the other is against ipxe component. Could you provide an efficient way for qe verify these 2 bzs both?

Best Regards,

For iPXE, check that there are no efi-* files provided.

For qemu-kvm, normal PXE boot sanity check is enough (beware that macvtap is broken, use normal bridge).
