Is there an easy way to mount a cdrom with iso image in nova boot? It is so
simple in vcenter or virtual box or hyperv, but I could not find a good way
with nova/neutron even in kilo. Closest I found is like this


The problem with that approach is you need a block device created from
image to use the command mounting as /dev/vdb and minimum size of that
block device is 20gb. Also it cannot be easily unmounted later. If there is
a way to mount cdrom device type directly in nova boot. I am sure I am not
the first person to think of this.

Other failed attempts
