Changing the default boot sequence for newly created virtual machines (1003558)
No. To change the default boot order for a virtual machine, you must boot each virtual machine individually and change the boot device order in the BIOS settings.
During power up or reboot, you must click in the virtual machine's console then press F2 to access the virtual machine's BIOS. However, it can be difficult to press F2 in time. For assistance if you do not press F2 quickly enough, see Accessing the BIOS when the POST screen clears too quickly (1004129).
