Description Daniel Rowe 2009-12-13 04:12:20 EST
Description of problem:

Fedora 12 KVM with libvirt seem not to be able to run Windows 7 64bit.

It installs fine but at the first boot the VM console get funny text mode characters on it and then its is process uses 100% CPU on the core where it is running.

Rebooting the VM after the BIOS post screen the console just goes black and the CPU goes to 100% again. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Every time. Installed different versions from different disks.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Win 7 in VM using libvrt machine manager using default options.
2. After install at first reboot, can go no further.
Actual results:

Win 7 will not run.

Expected results:

Will run.

Additional info:

Other VMs are working fine including MS ones like XP.

Can you post the machine definition file? This would be in /etc/libvirt/qemu/<machinename>.xml or the output of virsh dumpxml <machinename>

Not a bug more likely problem between the keyboard and the human.
