change boot order and password (BIOS)

Hi,

i build an automatic vm creation workflow in the orchestrator. now i want to change the boot order and set a bios password. There is

nothing to find in the librarys. Has anyone done anything like this, yet?

Best regards

Christian

have not found a way to change bootorder directly, but there was a script which allows to enable or disable a certain boot device.

using this functionality i was able to force the vm to pxe boot by disabling booting off the hd and later reenabling hd boot during setup.

this way i was able to create my own setupprogram which creates a vm and starts a windows installation automatically.

attached is my modified script to change boot preferences.
