Bug Description


Bug #1008622 allowed volumes to be booted without having to specify an image id. However, Horizon still requests that the user choose an image from the drop-down box when booting from a volume.

I've verified this is happening with Grizzly rc1.

Please let me know if you need any more information.

When booting from Volume, the user shouldn't be allowed to choose an Image at all or should we still allow this? I think we shouldn't, doesn't make too much sense, for example maybe he chooses an Ubuntu image with kernel and ramdisk seperated, but his Volume that he's booting from may be a totally different OS. Seems weird.

    Fixes boot from volume without image

    Fixes Bug #1163566

    I've also disabled booting from volume with an image specified
    although Nova does support this, I've chosen to still disable it in
    Horizon because it doesn't make much sense. Tihomir Trifonov also
    noted this.
