Description Zbigniew Jędrzejewski-Szmek 2013-05-30 12:55:06 EDT
Description of problem:
After going through the "Create a new virtual machine" dialog with a live CD, CD is "disconnected" and the machine fails to boot (no bootable media) after the first reboot. After "reattacing" the CD image, subsequent reboots work fine. I'm not entirely sure if this is expected behaviour, reporting just in case.

Very similar to #244802.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new virtual machine through virt-manager, type Linux|Fedora18 with testday-20130530-i686.iso (which is a live cd and doesn't install to disk) and a hard disk.
2. Reboot the VM.
3. No bootable image found, the CD is "disconnected".

Actual results:
I'd expect the CD to be there until I "disconnect" it explicitly.
Comment 1 Cole Robinson 2013-06-12 16:15:25 EDT
There is no explicit way in the 'New VM' wizard to say 'this is a livecd'. There's a trick that if you tell the wizard 'no storage' we keep the CD attached and say to always boot off the cdrom.

We could always keep ISOs attached, but it's kind of a problem with doing that and host cdrom passthrough like /dev/sr0 so we would need to differentiate.

Either waying duping to the existing RFE for this stuff
