Feature Request: Handling of virtual CD/DVD media

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
Many users just need the virtual CD/DVD media only one time (i.e. for installing the guest) - therefore adding/removing cd-media to the virtual media manager/ the guest instance creates some overhead work for the user. Just add a new option to the cdrom management property named "Ask if hard-disks are empty" (This option should be the dfault). The behavior of this function can be like that: If the vbox guest does not find a bootable media a popup window is opened which asks which media should be booted. In this popup you can select one of the cd/dvd media of the hostsystem to boot or open a file selector to select a iso-image. Iso images selected in this dialogue are not added to the virtual media manager.
