logs - exept kvm was no log specific for it on my system
Description of problem:
I´ve tried to install Microsoft Server 2008 R2 with virt-manager qemu/kvm
on fedora 15 update.
The windows installer run in a wrong state. It will new drivers -> thats not normal there should be a dialog of which version I want to install, the driver dialog is optional.
I´am sure of this -> hardware install and virtualbox install.-> both do it.
In the moment it is not possible to install microsoft server with qemu/kvm, because the driverdialog is not leavable. -> ssems that the instlller is not able to find the dvd correctly; in paradox it starts up until it asks for driver.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[user@localhost ~]$ rpm -qa | grep kvm
[user@localhost ~]$ rpm -qa | grep qemu
[user@localhost ~]$ rpm -qa | grep virt-manager
[user@localhost ~]$ rpm -qa | grep libvirt
[user@localhost ~]$ rpm -qa | grep kernel
Steps to Reproduce:
1.virt-manager - qemu/kvm
2.try to install microsoft server 2008 R2 -> there should be a test version for free.
working installation would be fine.
Additional info:May be that kvm works not correctly and there is a fall back to qemu. -> but the install should work in every case.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Fedora 15 will be end of life soon. If you can still reproduce this issue on F16 or F17, please reopen this report, and if possible provide a screenshot, photo, or word for word transcript of the dialog windows installer is stopping at.
