Ticket #8401 (new enhancement)
[feature-request] Direct Linux Boot
|Reported by:||Technologov||Owned by:|
Direct Linux Boot means that the user can specify guest kernel and initrd and boot Linux guest directly, either from CD/DVD, or from HDD, bypassing guest's bootloader.
This is useful for unattended installs, such as where you can command paths for Fedora/Red Hat anaconda to automatically install guest OS.
This is also useful for kernel developers, who want to quick test a kernel.
Note that Qemu (and KVM and Xen) have this feature.
