Description

Cloned from https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1398317

Description of problem:
When we deploy a new vm on VMWare from Satellite v 6 with Network Based installation mode, then the vm always boot from the network. As the boot sequence set is network, disk.

The customer do not have DHCP/PXE in the network so they are using host based iso to install a vm. Once the installation is completed after reboot every time the vm search for DHCP and it fails. This is causing delay in booting vm.

This issue is not seen if we build a vm with "Image Based" provisioning option from satellite v 6.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Satellite v 6.2

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Build a system from satellite v 6 with Network Based installation mode.
2. Go to BIOS for the vm and try to change the boot sequence.
3.

Actual results:
It is not allowed to change the boot sequence.

Expected results:
As the customer is installing ISO to complete the installation there should be an option to change the boot order for the vms.

Klaas reminded me there was already one attempt to make bootorder configurable at https://github.com/theforeman/foreman/pull/4400, there was a discussion about whether we want to include also ability to skip setting bootorder that makes it changeable later, but I think we don't need it in fact. We should just have the bootorder customizable in provisioning form (including compute profile) and potentially ignore it for image based provisioning.

I believe we are onto a change of boot AFTER build, that means changing the order on updating the vmware machine.
That is not unfortunately possible as of now in fog-vshere. So it needs to be enabled there first.

Leting user change the boot_order right on creation could lead to issues with provisioning.

Second problem is that we do not have jquery-ui dependency and we do not have drag and drop in patternfly yet.
