And one thing, which can make me happy. When I am trying virtual machines, I
often reinstall existing one. Then I need to boot from network and after
installation again from disk. I can't test new gPXE until it will work with
my F11 kernel, may be it's better with this, but with currently functional
bootrom I can't boot from disk if network boot is enabled and vice versa.
If my guest is set to boot from disk (after previous installation)
and I need to reinstall it, I have to do these steps:

   - click details panel (i)
   - click "Boot Options"
   - click on "Boot Device" menu
   - select "Network (PXE)" and confirm (click)
   - click "Apply"
   - click back to guest console
   - click start (play button)

That's not a virt-manager issue, it's a qemu issue I assume.

It works for me though - if I have network boot selected that I can bring up the boot menu with F12 and select the hard disk instead?

What I suspect you may be referring to is the fact that if you don't have network boot set as the default then the F12 boot menu doesn't include the network option - so you can't be set to boot from the hard disk by default and then choose to boot from network instead using the boot menu.

I too find that rather annoying, but as I say it is (I believe) a qemu issue rather than a libvirt issue.
