There is no options.
I want to deploy images from WDS.

if the vm has an invalid/non-existent boot device, it will attempt to get an IP address for a network boot when you start it

You can just Power On the virtual machine to the firmware (BIOS) and on Boot tab, move the Network boot from Intel E1000e to the top of the list, see:
