Error from bootloader: too many bootable disks

While checking something for a co-worker I ran into an issue recently reported in one of my comments.  Seems that it is possible to not be able to boot a PV ubuntu VM with an ISO mounted.  This is because the CD VBD is marked bootable.  The full error is “The bootloader for this VM returned an error — did the VM installation succeed?  Error from bootloader: too many bootable disks.”  The fix is the same as for the xe-edit-bootloader error I reported previously.
