Description of problem:
I declared a cdrom in virt-manager gui.  It showed as hdc
with type of cdrom.  I then chose CDROM in boot options, clicked Apply then
clicked RUN.  And got this traceback:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/engine.py", line 532, in run_domain
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/domain.py", line 380, in startup
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/libvirt.py", line 285, in create
    if ret == -1: raise libvirtError ('virDomainCreate() failed', dom=self)
libvirtError: internal error QEMU quit during console startup
Boot device 'd' was given twice

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# rpm -qa | grep virt

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. declare cdrom in gui
2. set boot options to boot from cdrom
3. click RUN
Actual results:

Expected results:

Hmm, your virt-manager.log doesn't contain this? Did you attach the wrong log or .... ?

Also, could you attach /var/log/libvirt/qemu/TEST1.log
