Windows installation did not get access to cdrom for stage 2.
Last modified: 2008-12-21 03:23:45 EST
Description of problem:
I was installing a windows xp on a rawhide box and when the windows virtual
machine rebooted, it did not have access to the cdrom, which it was installing from.
Created attachment 298304 [details]
The solution for this is to go into the virtual machine details and reattach hdc
to your ISO image.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
The fix for this is actually in python-virtinst, so moving to that component.
This has also been fixed upstream:
Media for a guest specified as 'Windows' now remains attached to the guest until
manually removed by the user.
