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.

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

Comment 2 Cole Robinson 2012-05-28 23:34:59 UTC
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.
