Having to upload system-provided ISOs manually make for a bad UX IMO,
we need a better solution for that (Say I want to upload the the ISOs
to my own ISO domain, where to I find them? how do I know the ones I
found match the oVirt version I have? This is a hassle, VMware has
VM->right-click->deploy guest tools).

So far we had at least one way to get around the hassle, before we
remove it, we need a better solution IMO.
