    Use floppy disk and a second CDROM on KVM · cc130cc7
    Marco Casavecchia authored
    Hi all,
    this patch will add 3 new KVM parameters and a new option.
    New Parameters:
     - floppy_image_path = "" -> Specify the floppy image to load as
    floppy disk.
     - cdrom2_image_path = "" -> Specify a second cdrom image to load on
    the system (note: this in not intended to be used as a boot device. To
    boot the system from cdrom you must use the "cdrom_image_path"
    parameter as always).
     - cdrom_disk_type = "" -> it can be one of the kvm supported types as
    "ide,scsi,paravirtual,ecc". I introduced this optional parameter to
    make possible to specify a different virtual device for cdroms. It is
    useful if you want to install a windows system
    New option for "boot_device" parameter:
     -  "floppy": with this value you should be able to boot a KVM
    instance from floppy image.
