Is it possible with OpenStack to combine bare metal installation using PXE with virtual systems? Basically asking for the following work flow in compute:

  • Create virtual guest with specified parameters (network, memory, ram)
  • report back MAC address
  • use MAC address of virtual guest for pxe configuration
  • after pxe is configured boot guest VM

Have only found pxe information for bare metal using real bare metal systems.

You may want to look at Ironic. In this tutorial nested VMs are created and deployed via TFTP and I also suppose PXE.
