> Currently all VMs that CloudStack creates will include a virtual CD-ROM drive. In some
cases, such as with virtual appliances (e.g. NetScaler VPX), a CD-ROM drive is not needed
or even unsupported. It would be useful if CloudStack could deploy a VM without a CD-ROM drive
to allow such cases.
> Perhaps such functionality could be added using new OS Types, for example:
> Other - No CD-ROM (32-bit)
> Other - No CD-ROM (64-bit)
> Other PV - No CD-ROM (32-bit)
> Other PV - No CD-ROM (64-bit)
> Or maybe it could be added on a per VM or per template basis with a new configuration
parameter. This might be more flexible since some customers might want to use arbitrary OS
types for VMs with no CD-ROM.
