Can the Windows VM Boot messages be ignored?

I am doing my first windows VMs.

Are these messages that show briefly normal / not-normal / of any importance / or can they be ignored?
(i guess i mean the first one as the second appear to be success messages)

You can change the boot order in the webUI so it won't try to boot from the virtual CD/DVD drive first which then fails as there is no UEFI bootable iso found.

Thanks for confirming this is normal.
