Fedora 7 test bugs should be filed against "devel", not against test1/2/3. This
isn't obvious, I know. Moving this report so it isn't lost.

This is a bulk message -- I apologize if this was actually meant to be targeted
against a different release. If so, please fix or let me know. Thanks.

Came across this in RHEL5 today...

Fix for this is detailed in:
https://virt.108.redhat.com/articles/2007/01/15/xen-guest-installation.pdf
(page 5)

"12. Choose to format the C:\ partition in FAT file system format. Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5 does not come with NTFS kernel modules. Mounting or writing
files to the Xen guest image may not be as straight-forward if you were to
format the partition in NTFS file system format.

13. After the first reboot, fix the winxp guest image:
                                                                               
                                                                               
                 Xen Guest Installation
    losetup /dev/loop0 /xen/winxp.img
    kpartx -av /dev/loop0
    mount /dev/mapper/loop0p1 /mnt
    cp -prv $WINDOWS/i386 /mnt/1
    umount /mnt

14. Restart the Xen guest manually:
    xm create -c winxp

15. Select winxp Xen guest from 'Virtual Machine Manager' and click Open.

16. The 'Virtual Machine Console' window will pop up. Proceed as normal with the
installation.
17. Whenever a 'Files Needed' dialog box appears, change the path
GLOBALROOT\DEVICE\CDROM0\I386 to C:\I386. Depending on your installation, you
may or may not see this problem. You may be prompted for missing files numerous
times. Changing the path to C:\I386 will fix this problem.

Replace the: GLOBALROOT\DEVICE\CDROM\I386
with: C:\I386"

The Windows XP CD is the new updated CD with Service Pack 2 included.
Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 19:56:05 EDT
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:

doesn't happen again.
Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2008-05-06 21:25:03 EDT
This bug has been in NEEDINFO for more than 30 days since feedback was
first requested. As a result we are closing it.

If you can reproduce this bug in the future against a maintained Fedora
version please feel free to reopen it against that version.
