Hello another quick question our VM-host every time i update and reboot, it reboots to PXE and searching for media so i have cancel that by pressing Esc which eliminate the update process remotely, so should i change my boot order to skip pxe so i can reboot the vm-host remotely as well.

Thanks

Make sure after updating you unmount the cd/dvd drive or it will try to boot to it.

You are talking about the physical host? In the BIOS settings at start up you should be able to go in and select start up devices. Just disable PXE or move it to a lower priority than the HDD.

No it's not vm guest it's hyper-v host machine nothing is mounted I can't reboot it remotly because it goes to pxe boot which requires physical presence to cancel that by pressing Esc button
