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.

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bug was created, it appears to have been reported against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer maintained.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: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/F9CleanUp We will be following the process here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this doesn't happen again.

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.
