Description Pawan kumar Vilayatkar 2019-03-26 01:10:00 UTC
Description of problem:

Booting with ISO even after changing the boot as first boot device cdrom.
Booting VM uswaspl80a in Run Once with CDROM attached, the option "Enable menu to select boot device" checked and "Predefined Boot Sequence" selected as "
CD-ROM as a first boot device, the boot and when pressing ESC the boot option there are virtio device listed and cdrom is listed 10.

When we pressed 10 option the VM took 1 as option and boot with disk then we rebooted the VM and these we selected the '0' option after which the VM booted
with CD_ROM, so it seems to be a bug for not allowing to enter 2 digit number selection. 



Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rhvm 4.2.8

How reproducible:

I recreate a VM with 10 disks.
Then attached CD to the iso from the ISO domain.
GUI -> Compute -> Virtual Machine -> Select VM -> Edit -> Boot Options
Checked "Attach CD" and selected iso image.
Also Checked "Enable menu to select boot device".
Started the VM, open the VM console window, hit the ESC key to get the menu.
The DVD/CD was number 11.  
If entered 11, then the disk 1 would boot.


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create VM with 10 disk
2. Then attached CD to the iso from the ISO domain.
3. Checked "Attach CD" and selected iso image.
4. Also Checked "Enable menu to select boot device".
5. Started the VM, open the VM console window, hit the ESC key to get the menu.
The DVD/CD was number 11.  
6. If entered 11, then the disk 1 would boot.

Actual results:
When we press 10 option the VM took 1 as option and boot with disk and we select the '0' option after which the VM booted with CD_ROM, so it seems to be a bug for not allowing to enter 2 digit number selection.



Expected results:
The boot menu should take 2 digit number for booting

I tested on https://lab-rhevm.gsslab.brq.redhat.com (4.2.4.5).
I can select #10 with "0", #11 with "-" and #12 with "=".
No idea how to select anything past that. Also, this is not intuitive at all.

This will need a platform bug, since it's in seabios.

In the meantime, using the top row of keys is an acceptable workaround

Comment 6 Ryan Barry 2019-03-27 01:03:39 UTC
Deferring while we wait for platform

Comment 7 Ryan Barry 2019-03-27 01:21:19 UTC
Also note that, especially in run once mode, wetting the cdrom as the primary boot device works in testing. No need for the menu
