PXE Boot gives up

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

When booting a VM through PXE, the current behavior is to try Interface 1 for some time, then go over to the next interface, and when there are now more interfaces, give up. A better behavior would be to go round-robin, so that when there are no more interfaces, in would start over from interface 1. In the case of the server facilitating the PXE boot also being a VM, it might not be booted before the other VM's PXE boot has given up.

It would also be useful to select which interface(s) should boot, so that one doesn't have to wait for an interface which is on a different net to time out.
