[libvirt] Can't boot guest after adding an IDE storage



Hi,

We installed Fedora 11 guest in an emulated SCSI disk using virt-install.
After the installation the guest was shutdown and additional IDE virtual
storage was added to the guest.

When we try to boot the guest from virt-manager, it tries to boot from the
newly added IDE storage (instead of installed SCSI storage) and fails to
boot.

It seems that how the disk devices are sorted is the problem. There is a bug
opened to track this issue:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=507271

As dicussed in the bugzilla, ideally there should be a 'bootable' flag for
each storage device. Also virt-manager could another option to specify which
disk to boot from.

Regards, M. Mohan Kumar
