Changing options are not getting activated without power off/power on

Currently, when I change boot order of a KVM VM for example, it does not get activated without powering off the VM then powering on back.

I've tried
- Editing the config file of the VM, changing "boot:"
- Using monitor in Proxmox UI, typing: "boot_set"
- Using qm command, typing: "qm VMID -boot"

None of the above worked without powering off the VM to changes take place.

Is there a way to get these changes activated without power off/on?
