Blue screen with the windows 7 crash

Description of problem: Windows 7 install crashes under Fedora 11 (screenshot attached)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

qemu version:


How reproducible: Allways

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a VM on virt-manager pointing to the install DVD of the latest released win7 version on MSDN (en_windows_7_ultimate_x64_dvd_x15-65922.iso)
2. The VM starts to boot the install DVD, after a few moments we get a blue screen with the message (screenshot contains the blue screen):

*** STOP: 0x0000005c (0x00000000000000010B, 0x000000000000000003, 0x000000000000000000, 0x000000000000000000)

Actual results: Windows 7 install crashes

Expected results: Windows 7 install to finish successfuly

Additional info: 

1) qemu command line assembled by libvirt:

/usr/bin/qemu-kvm -S -M pc -m 1000 -smp 1 -name windows7 -uuid 024a96f7-80a2-0227-aadb-35587f21f4f4 -monitor pty -pidfile /var/run/libvirt/qemu//windows7.pid -localtime -boot d -drive file=/home/lmr/Virt/images/windows7.img,if=ide,index=0 -drive file=/home/lmr/Virt/isos/windows/en_windows_7_ultimate_x64_dvd_x15-65922.iso,if=ide,media=cdrom,index=2 -net nic,macaddr=54:52:00:6a:f2:15,vlan=0 -net tap,fd=17,vlan=0 -serial pty -parallel none -usb -usbdevice tablet -vnc

2) The very same procedure works fine under the qemu version shipped with rawhide (as of now, qemu-kvm-0.11.0-2.fc12).

Okay, we've another similar, but slightly different, report in bug #526012

Could you include ~/.virt-manager/virt-manager.log? What guest type did you tell virt-manager you were installing?

virt-manager log

Comment 3 Lucas Meneghel Rodrigues 2009-10-01 20:42:58 UTC
Sure, just did. I told virt-manager I was installing windows vista, which is indeed the closest thing to windows 7.

Comment 4 Mark McLoughlin 2009-10-02 08:27:03 UTC
Thanks Lucas

Well, at least we know this works in F-12

If anybody has an idea what the fix was, we'll happily pull it into F-11

Note, Frederic posted more details on his Windows 7 problem to bug #526012. I'm leaving it marked as a duplicate of this one until someone has a chance to debug a Windows 7 on Fedora 11

Comment 7 Jaroslav Sykora 2010-01-09 10:15:03 UTC
I had similar problem with Vista - BSOD 5c early during boot. Turned out that is caused by the bochs bios - Bug #549290.

Comment 10 Bug Zapper 2010-04-28 10:36:22 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '11'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 11 Bug Zapper 2010-06-28 14:50:24 UTC
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
