One *really annoying* quality of needing to use F2/F8/F12 during Windows bootup in a VM (including ESX/vSphere) is that sometimes it can be impossible to be quick enough on the keyboard to get attention before the OS bootup has begun. By the time you can get a console focus it's too late. That can be enormously frustrating, and Run Once does help with that.

btw, what happens if you boot from [disk, pxe] - if the disk doesn't 
have anything on it, its supposed to pass to 2nd boot device, then on 
restart it will be ok?
