Hi Neil,

'start at boot' flag means that when your physical server boot, your VMs 
will be started also. It has nothing to do with reboot inside a VM.

It sometimes happen with windows VM and certain drivers. What kind of VM 
do you have (windows, linux ...) and is it KVM or openvz ? What do you 
use as drivers (virtio, something else...).
