PXE and virtuall guests

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.
