Description Jiri Denemark 2010-09-06 12:44:58 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #594068 +++

Description of problem:

Clone of a corresponding bug fixed in RHEL-6...

using 'no hardware acceleration' option in qemu (no-kvm) results a situation where vm is stuck on booting from hard drive. 
when running same vm but using the '-enable-kvm' option, vm boots from hard drive and os is loaded. 

 - qemu process with kvm disabled - vm doesn't boot from hard drive and stuck 
   on 'Booting from Hard disk...'
