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