The moment windows XP installer stucks in VM

Description of problem:

Windows XP installer stucks installing with virtio-drivers.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
virtio-win-0.1.101 - virtio-win-0.1.110-2/ (from here: https://fedorapeople.org/groups/virt/virtio-win/direct-downloads/archive-virtio/)

How reproducible:
Just create windows xp VM throuth virt-manager with Virtio Disk hardware.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change IDE Disk to Virtio Disk
2. Add floppy device and mount virtio-win-0.1.110_x86.vfd to it.
3. Start newly created WinXP VM from mounted winXP SP3 iso for installation.
4. Press F6 to choose virtio-drivers and then, a little later, "S" button, add VirtIO BLOCK Disk Device WinXP/32-bit. Press Enter to continue.

Actual results:
Installer stucks on "Setup is starting Windows" installer message.

Expected results:
Installation should continue.

Additional info:
The thing is installation is stucks on all virtio-win driver versions except virtio-win-0.1.100. With this version windows installer continues and allows to install Windows XP successfully.

I can confirm.

With machine='pc-i440fx-2.1' is latest version broken. I tested and it worked 0.1.100.

With machine='pc-0.12' it worked just fine.

Same situation applies when switching from running system on IDE to VIRTIO.

< pc-0.12 not tested
> pc-0.12 && <= pc-0.14 works with latest build
> pc-0.14 works with 0.1.100, but not latest. Tested up to pc-i440fx-2.1.

I hope it helps find issue, would be nice to have working latest version

Can reproduce on my setup. Looks like a broken driver.
Comment 11 David Heidelberg (okias) 2016-05-15 15:45:53 EDT
That's great, should I expect any fix comming soon?

according to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1284769#c5
the problem should be fixed in build 112. Do you still observe the same problem?
If yes, please specify qemu, kvm and virtio-win drivers versions along with qemu command line.

Best regards,

Works on already installed system, so I presume it'll be also fixed when installing XP.

Thank you
