    Currently, there is no such built-in functionality in the product. Only boot from Rescue ISO is available: here is a feature request that you can vote for on Suggest Idea portal

    And use manual tweak of a virtual machine configuration file to attach ISO image as a workaround:

    1. Connect to CR node via SSH
    2. Using VPS UUID that can be found in SolusIO edit configuration:
      virsh edit UUID
    3. Change the boot order and path to ISO:

      <type arch='x86_64'>hvm</type>
      <boot dev='cdrom'/> << change this line
      <disk type='file' device='cdrom'>
      <driver name='qemu' type='raw'/>
      <source file='path-to-iso'/> << put the path to corresponding iso file
      <target dev='hda' bus='ide'/>
    4. Restart VPS:
      virsh reboot UUID
