Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 962563
disable (for now) EFI-enabled roms
Last modified: 2014-06-17 23:28:12 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.
Fix included in qemu-kvm-1.5.2-3.el7
For the bug verification ,does it will be blocked by Bug 895959 - [Tracker] provide RHEL-specific machine types in QEMU.
No this bz should not be blocke by machine types. Removing the dependency.
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?
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).
