Description Mike Cao 2011-08-05 08:17:09 UTC
Description of problem:
in virtio-win-1.3.2.iso ,I saw virtio nic/balloon/serial digital signed drivers listed for winxp 64 bit ,while QE never tried it in whql test as winxp 64 bit is not officially supported .

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# rpm -q virtio-win

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpm -ivh virtio-win-1.3.2-1.el6.noarch.rpm
2.mount -o loop virtio-win-1.3.2.iso /opt
Actual results:
1. ls /opt/vioserial/xp/amd64/
vioser.cat  vioser.inf  vioser.sys  vioser-test.exe  WdfCoInstaller01009.dll
2. # ls /opt/Balloon/xp/amd64/
balloon.cat  balloon.inf  balloon.pdb  balloon.sys  blnsvr.exe  blnsvr.pdb  WdfCoInstaller01009.dll
3.#ls /opt/NetKVM/xp/amd64/
netkvm.cat  netkvm.inf  netkvm.pdb  netkvm.sys

Expected results:
all files described in actual results shouldn't be listed ,as QE did not do WHQL test for windows xp 64 bit

Hi Mike,

Could you please check this issue?
Seems like not only virtio-win-1.3.2-1 has 
this problem, but also 1.3.2-2 

Best regards,

download the virtio-win-1.3.3-0.el6.noarch.rpm ,repeat steps in comment #0

Actual Results:
no directory for winxp 64 bit .
also check the files in virtio-win-1.3.3-0.el6.src.rpm .
still no directory for winxp 64 bit

Based on above ,this issue has been fixed.
Move status to VERIFIED.
