Virtual machine stops during installation with error - "Fail to handle apic access vmexit! Offset is 0x30"
Last modified: 2015-06-21 20:07:32 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm attempting to create a Windows 7 virtual machine. The system is booting from a physical DVD for installation. However, during the boot, before installation begins, the VM hangs. I've recreated the VM several times and have experienced the same problem.
In /var/log/messages, the following error message shows up each time the VM stops responding:
Fail to handle apic access vmexit! Offset is 0x30
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@mcpierce-laptop ~]# rpm -q qemu-kvm
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new VM, selecting "Windows" and "Windows 7" as the OS. Leave all else as default.
2. Start the VM, booting from a DVD install media.
The VM becomes unresponsive after the Windows 7 logo is displayed.
The VM to continue responding normally, allowing for proper installation.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Is this still happening with qemu-kvm-0.13.0?
I have not been able to reproduce this issue, or seen it with the 0.13.0 release. Based on the lack of response I am guessing it is no longer an issue for you too? I am going to close as fixed in 0.13.0, please feel free to reopen if this is still happening for you.
