Additional info:
1. It works fine if install a RHEL system from iso with same cli except for the iso file
2. It works fine if delete floppy option from cli

CLI:
# /usr/libexec/qemu-kvm -M rhel6.2.0 -enable-kvm -m 4096 -smp 4 -name win2k8r2sp1 -uuid `uuidgen`  -boot d -drive file=/home/test.img,if=none,id=drive-ide-0-0,media=disk,format=qcow2,cache=none,werror=stop -device ide-drive,drive=drive-ide-0-0,id=ide0-0-0 -net none  -usb -device usb-tablet,id=input1 -spice port=9000,disable-ticketing -vga qxl -monitor stdio -balloon none -drive file=/home/en_windows_server_2008_r2_standard_enterprise_datacenter_and_web_with_sp1_x64_dvd_617601.iso,if=none,media=cdrom,id=drive-ide0-1-0,readonly=on,format=raw -device ide-drive,drive=drive-ide0-1-0,id=ide0-1-0 -drive file=/usr/share/virtio-win/virtio-win.vfd,id=fda,format=raw,cache=none -global isa-fda.driveA=fda

Comment 2 Chao Yang 2011-08-16 11:12:27 UTC
This issue disappears when I append 'if=none' to floppy, like: "-drive file=/usr/share/virtio-win/virtio-win.vfd,if=none,id=fda,format=raw,cache=none -global isa-fda.driveA=fda". Seems if don't specify the interface in cli, qemu-kvm won't set it to 'none'. 

Closing as NOTABUG.
