RHEL55 installed XP hanging on 2nd reboot under RHEL6
Description of problem:
An install of XP as a guest under RHEL55, when rebooted under RHEL6 it
first comes up, but on the second reboot it comes up claiming that
<Windows root>\system32\hal.dll is missing.
It could be either general disk corruption or something specific with
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Installed in RHEL55 using this command:
/usr/libexec/qemu-kvm -m 1G -smp 2 -drive file=/var/lib/libvirt/images/xp-new-1.1.6.img,if=virtio,cache=none,boot=on -net nic,model=virtio,vlan=1,macaddr=02:00:40:3F:55:10 -net tap,vlan=1,script=/etc/kvm-ifup.sh -boot dc -uuid 17544ecc-d3a1-4d3c-a386-12daf50015f1 -usbdevice tablet -no-hpet -rtc-td-hack -no-kvm-pit-reinjection -monitor stdio -balloon none -startdate now -cdrom /home/isos/en_windows_xp_professional_with_service_pack_3_x86_cd_x14-80428.iso -vnc 127.0.0.1:0 -fda ~jes/virtio-win-1.1.6-0.vfd
Then booted in RHEL6 like this:
/usr/libexec/qemu-kvm -m 1G -smp 2 -drive file=/var/lib/libvirt/images/xp-new-1.1.6.img,if=virtio,cache=none,boot=on -net nic,model=virtio,vlan=1,macaddr=02:00:40:3F:55:10 -net tap,vlan=1,script=/etc/kvm-ifup.sh -boot dc -uuid 17544ecc-d3a1-4d3c-a386-12daf50015f1 -usbdevice tablet -rtc-td-hack -no-kvm-pit-reinjection -monitor stdio -balloon none -startdate now -cdrom /home/isos/en_windows_xp_professional_with_service_pack_3_x86_cd_x14-80428.iso -vnc 127.0.0.1:0
Went through it coming up, clicked around a bit, then tried to reboot
it from within XP. It didn't get far, and stopped at a black screen
with the message. See attachment.
