Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 517151
virtinst creates cdrom device using virtio rather than IDE
Last modified: 2016-04-26 14:18:26 EDT
Description of problem:
When creating a new guest virtual machine for Fedora 10 and specifying Fedora 10 as the system type, the resulting device type for the CD/DVD iso image is "/dev/vdb" which results in "could not read boot disk".
I suspect that only an IDE device will work with the CD/DVD.
I have not tested it but this probably does not work with a Fedora 11 guest either.
Specifying that the system type is Fedora 9 so that IDE device types only will be used works.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 11 plus "virt-preview" set of packages for F11.
Could you attach virt-manager.log and the guest log from /var/log/libvirt/qemu ?

started with a clean log ... only did the definition of "f10test" which had /deb/vdb for the CD/DVD (which did not work)

Thanks Gene, I can reproduce this - adding to the Fedora 12 blocker list

Perry confirms this happens with virt-install too

removing the virtio storage device for the cdrom and re-adding a new storage device as cdrom/ide for the iso and my livecd boots!

I think this is supposed to be fixed by:

- Don't use virtio for cdrom devices (bz 517151)
However, there may be more issues - see bug #524109
