Subject Re: How to create empty guest VM

Take a look at http://ipxe.org/ it should enable you to create a boot ISO which behaves like
a PXE boot, I've not tried it yet with CloudStack, but I have used (different) boot images
in the past when I have had problems using PXE on old hardware


Kind Regards

Most PXE Boot systems enable you to create a PXE Boot Image, you can then upload the ISO to
CloudStack and boot from that.

Thank you very much,
But I could not crate a vm without ISO or template.
Yes my intention is to install guest OS from PXE boot.

Thanks

Deploying from an ISO, via cloudstack, is effectively booting an 'empty'/OS-less vm. Is there
something specific you want to do after booting a vm with no OS?
