Description YangFeng 2010-06-17 10:44:01 UTC
Description of problem:
RHEL-4.8 32 image could not boot up after update kernel to latest.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Host kernel:
qemu-kvm version:

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a RHEL-4.8 32 guest os.
'qemu-kvm -name 'vm1' -monitor tcp:0:6001,server,nowait -drive file=RHEL-4.8-32-2.qcow2,if=ide,cache=none,boot=on,aio=native -net nic,vlan=0,model=e1000,macaddr=02:8F:50:B4:3c:42 -net tap,vlan=0,ifname=e1000_0_6001,script=/etc/qemu-ifup-switch,downscript=no,vhost=on -m 2048 -smp 2 -soundhw ac97 -redir tcp:5000::22 -vnc :0 -usbdevice tablet -rtc-td-hack -cpu qemu64,+sse2 -no-kvm-pit-reinjection -serial unix:/tmp/serial-20100613-180943-9cCi,server,nowait
2. Update RHEL-4.8 kernel to latest.
'rpm -ivhf http://download.devel.redhat.com/brewroot/packages/kernel/2.6.9/89.28.EL/i686/kernel-smp-2.6.9-89.28.EL.i686.rpm'
3. Reboot RHEL-4.8 32 guest os.
Actual results:
RHEL-4.8 32 guest could not boot up successfully. It stop at probing PCI hardware.

Expected results:
RHEL-4.8 32 guest boot up successfully. 

Additional info:
Original kernel in RHEL-4.8 32 image(uname -a):
