Yes, that's the behavior on both ovirt and ESXi when creating a new VM.
The problem is when you need to reinstall that VM. On ESXi I can hit
F12 on boot to PXE boot, OS re-installs, then boots normally to disk.
On ovirt, I have to select Run Once, move PXE to the top, re-install,
when the installer auto reboots, it goes back into PXE mode and starts
reinstalling again. I have to watch the console and power off at the
right time, then power back on in normal mode.
A better behavior for Run Once would be just that...Run once...If the
guest reboots Run Once should power off, or go back to normal boot
behavior. But I suppose that depends upon what your definition of Run
The ESXi BIOS is a Pheonix BIOS and in this case, functions just like a
bare metal BIOS, like the ovirt Sea BIOS should :)
