Provide warning for unsupported PXE loader combinations
Users very often try to provision RHEL 6 with Grub2 in UEFI which leads to boot loading errors (bacically Grub2 prompt or kernel panic).
We need a warning next to PXE Loader flag in the UI if there is known combination of OS and loader that does not work. These currently are:
- RHEL 6.x and Grub2
- RHEL 7.x and Grub1
- Ubuntu 10.x or older and Grub2
- Ubuntu 11.x or newer and Grub1
- Debian 2-6 and Grub2
- Debian 7+ and Grub1
This can be as simple as regular expression and a warning message showing up next to the field in the UI. No actions must be taken. A global setting should be present which will turn this feature of in case user do not want to see these warnings.

Just to clear things little bit, these are known and supported cobinations, we should only issue warning if ANY of these rules are not true:
- RHEL 6.x and Grub1
- RHEL 7.x and Grub2
- Ubuntu 10.x or older and Grub1
- Ubuntu 11.x or newer and Grub2
- Debian 2-6 and Grub1
- Debian 7+ and Grub2
It's actually the opposite of unsupported combinations in the original description. I think we should have a list of supported pairs rather than unsupported, that's all.
