kvm-44 fixes blue screen of death (BSOD) during Vista install
Last modified: 2008-05-30 01:51:19 EDT
Description of problem:
The current build of KVM (36-6.fc8) is crashing the Vista (32bit) install.
Using the latest upstream release (kvm-44) resolved the above problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
HOST: Fedora x86_64 rawhide build (9/28/07),
GUEST: Vista Ultimate 32bit
OK, I forgot to mentioned that kvm kernel modules on kvm-44 is causing segfault.
So to avoid BSOD while installing Vista 32bit, I use the following components:
From Fedora KVM.x86_64.36-6.fc8:
From upstream KVM-44:
Motherboard: ECS GeForce6100SM-M v1.0
CPU: AMD Athlon64 X2 4400
Chipset: Nvidia 6100S
Rawhide is now up to kvm-60, does that fix the issue for you?
I can confirm that it fixed it for me! I just rebuilt the rawhide kvm,
re-modprobed the modules, and all was well. :-)
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
I agree, the problem has been fixed on FC9 (kvm.x86_64 ver 65-1.fc9)
