In Fusion Pro, you can power on or restart a virtual machine to firmware.
The power on to firmware option is available for local and remote virtual machines, but the option is not available for vCloud Air virtual machines. The power on to firmware option is not available if the virtual machine is suspended.
The power on to firmware option is supported in Fusion Pro 8.1.
If the virtual machine is powered off, the virtual machine boots directly to firmware. If the virtual machine is powered on, you are prompted to restart your virtual machine. Click Restart.
