Last modified: 2009-12-20 00:41:47 EST
Description of problem:
Fedora 12 KVM with libvirt seem not to be able to run Windows 7 64bit.
It installs fine but at the first boot the VM console get funny text mode characters on it and then its is process uses 100% CPU on the core where it is running.
Rebooting the VM after the BIOS post screen the console just goes black and the CPU goes to 100% again.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time. Installed different versions from different disks.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Win 7 in VM using libvrt machine manager using default options.
2. After install at first reboot, can go no further.
Win 7 will not run.
Other VMs are working fine including MS ones like XP.
Can you post the machine definition file? This would be in /etc/libvirt/qemu/<machinename>.xml or the output of virsh dumpxml <machinename>
Not a bug more likely problem between the keyboard and the human.
