Definitely an edge case, but I'm fairly sure that an image that won't boot
from physical optical media also will not boot this way.
I suspect this is not necessarily the case. We've had a real bug in the
past where the ISO images would boot when attached to virtual machines
as virtual optical media, but would fail to boot on many/most systems
when actually written to a physical optical disc. I have no idea which
side of that split this system falls on, but it seems at least
plausible that it would act more like the 'virtual disc' case than the
'physical disc' case...
