Hello,

my english is not so good, so I hope you understand me.

This is my /etc/pve/nodes/localhost/qemu-server/1000.conf:

Code:
ide0: local:1000/vm-1000-disk-1.vmdk
ostype: wxp
memory: 1536
sockets: 1
net0: rtl8139=A6:A8:29:E9:74:ED,bridge=vmbr0
ide2: local:iso/de_winxp_pro_with_sp2.iso,media=cdrom
name: WinXP-Test
bootdisk: ide0
cores: 1
keyboard: de
boot: ndc

Boot Device Priority is "network, cdrom, hdd".

But if I start the VM, it always boot from HDD. I have to reset it, press F12 for Boot Menu, and I have the following options:

Code:
1. Legacy option rom
2. iPXE (PCI 00:12.0)
3. DVD/CD [ata1-0: QEMU DVD-ROM ATAPI-4 DVD/CD]
4. ata0-0: QEMU HARDDISK ATA-7 Hard-Disk (80 GiBytes)
5. Legacy option rom

If I select "2", then it boot from network.

Why don't it boot automatically from network? I have "network" as first boot device configured.

I hope somebody can help me.

Kind regards
michseel

make sure that you use the latest version.

did you write 'boot: ndc' manually in this file?

you need to set the boot order via gui (see 'Options')

I set the boot device priority over the GUI, not manually.

I use Version 2.0/784729f4.

with this method, 2 other Proxmox 2 Beta Servers are crashed after I do this...
