[virt-tools-list] RHEL 6 VMs don't reboot at the end of the OS install

Hi all,

   When I install most VMs, like any Windows guest, the VM will reboot 
after the first stage of the install is done. I see in 'virt-install' 
that there is a '--noreboot' option to stop this.

   My issue is the opposite... When I click on "reboot" at the end of 
installing RHEL 6 (or CentOS 6), the guest stays off. Is this a known 
issue or bug? Is there a way to tell the VM to always reboot after the 
first stage of the OS install is done?


PS - Host is RHEL 6.5, installed using virt-install. Everything stock
