            Bug ID: 271632
           Summary: Feature request: Make bsdinstall eject install ISO
           Product: Base System
           Version: Unspecified
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Some People
          Priority: ---
         Component: bin
          Assignee: bugs@FreeBSD.org

When installing a VM under VirtualBox or similar systems, it would be helpful
for bsdinstall to eject the ISO image before rebooting.

Manually ejecting is difficult since it cannot be done until the ISO is
unmounted, which occurs just before reboot, and the BIOS post time is about 1
second for a VM.  The user has very little time to eject the ISO and prevent
the VM from booting from the install media again after installation.

Same may apply to bare metal systems, though the user has much more time to
remove the media before the next boot.
