boot from ISO
I'm very interested in the "Boot From ISO" feature described here:
In a few words, it's about the ability to boot a VM from the CDROM with
an ISO image attached. A blank hard disk being attached to install the
OS files in it.
I've got some questions about this:
1. Is the feature available today using a standard Diablo install? I've
seen the code about this feature is stored under nova/tests and
glance/tests. Does this mean it isn't finished yet and could only be
tested under specific conditions? Which ones?
2. the spec tells about a Windows use case. Why just Windows? What
should I do to test with a Linux distribution?
3. I can see here
that the Xen hypervisor only has been impacted by the source code
changes. Are KVM and VMWare planned to be supported in the future? May I
help/be helped to develop KVM and VMWare support for this 'Boot From
Any help appreaciated
