While creating the VM, is there a way to change the boot sequence? If no, how does Nutanix boot up the loaded image iso?

You could use vm.update_boot_device to change the boot order of a VM if you need. I mean if there is no filesystem of a new VM, but the ISO is attached than not sure why it didn't just work for you.

Hi @Nanda

By default the boot order for all VMs on AHV is CDROM -> Hard Disk -> NIC.

If you want change the boot order you can use the acli vm.update_boot_device command.
