Description of problem:
stop guest when the guest in "working on updates" stage，then migrate to dst host，then the dst guest "working on updates" and boot repeatedly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.start VM in src host.
2.start listening mode in dst host <command Line> -incoming tcp:0:5800
3.Guest in the status:"working on updates 30% finished", stop guest and then migrate to dst host:
(qemu)migrate -d tcp:$dst_host_ip:5888
4.after migration finished,
in src host:(qemu): info migrate----->Migration status: completed
in dst host:(qemu): info status---->VM status: running
but guest show step as following:
1. "working on updates 0~30% complete",
3. boot and we can see the seabios interface
4. ""please wait"-->"Geting windows ready"--->"working on updates 30~100% complete"
6. "Geting windows ready"
7. then repeat the above steps: 1~6
repeat update and boot.
guest should boot successfully.
Please disable "reboot on fail" in Windows before you start the
upgrade, and then reproduce it; when Windows fails after the
migration please save the memory dump and attache it here.
Please uncheck "Automatically restart" (see pages 31 and 32 http://www.slideshare.net/YanVugenfirer/windows-guestdebugging-kvmforum2012) option for blue screen. After a crash, enter safe mode and collect the crash dump file.
I have retest this bug for several times, and i find the guest will reboot during install updates even without migration.
I think it should be normal phenomenon,as some updates need to reboot.
In the end, after all the updates finished, can enter the guest successfully，and the guest work normallly.
Closing according to comment #5.
