Hi all,

Also the wizard should support multiple NICs and disks - perhaps from
step 5 -  be able to launch sub-wizards to add nic and add disk?

I think such a process would add non-trivial complication to the UI for
a rather niche case. For a user wanting a multi nic or disk configured
VM, I would point them at virt-install which easily scales in this
respect. Extra NICs could also be added post install, since I would
think only one would be required for the install process.

My opinion is that this can be solved by some sort of "do not start the VM and open VM details for fine tuning" option. I am not sure where I've seen this (VMWare ESX maybe?) but the last page of the wizard contained checkboxes like "start machine now" and "edit VM details after closing the wizard". With reasonable default values you can satisfy both advanced user and a "just to be done" user in a straight-forward way.

Radek's option seems to make good sense. It also has the added benefit of being able to create a VM but not starting it and containing the complexity of the wizard.

This actually leads to another question:
If we select PXE, do subsequent reboots also enable PXE? or is PXE only enable for the install?

Can we have systems that will always run PXE? eg, stateless/diskless VMs?
