Steps to Reproduce

1.configure --enable-board=intel-xeon-core --enable-rootfs=ovp-ovirt-node --enable-addons=wr-ovp --with-template=feature/openvswitch,feature/ovp-benchmark,feature/vxlan,feature/virtio,feature/target-toolchain,feature/benchmark --enable-parallel-pkgbuilds=5 --enable-jobs=5
2. make all
3. configure --enable-board=intel-xeon-core --enable-kernel=standard --enable-rootfs=glibc_small --enable-bootimage=iso --enable-target-installer=yes --with-installer-target-build=${Previous_ovp_ovirt-node}/export/intel-xeon-core-ovp-ovirt-node-preempt-rt-dist.ext3
4. make all
5. Try to install ovp host through wr-installer iso.  The default /boot partition is too small, only 12M by default.
