We have planned some changes to the OVF metadata inside the Fedora
CoreOS VMware OVA.
Scheduled for the next cycle of `testing` and `next` releases:
- OVF metadata will select UEFI firmware by default
- OVF metadata will enable Secure Boot by default
- OVF metadata will identify the OS as Fedora instead of RHEL 7
These changes will flow into `stable` the week of April 11. You can
track the status of this change at
Scheduled for after October 15, when vSphere 6.5 and 6.7 will reach end of life:
- OVF metadata will update from hardware version 13 to version 17

If these changes break your deployment workflow, please follow up in
the issues listed above or open a new issue.
