Description of problem:
Windows 8 fails to start with this error:
Your PC needs to restart.
Please hold down the power button.
Error Code: 0x0000005D
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Power on Virtual Machine
2.Verify error on screen
I have virtual machine that I may upload so you can see it.
It is a 32 bit VM. I did some research and it has to do with the type of CPU. I tried every combination offered by virt-manager, and also forcing NX, etc. It does not change anything. Kvm is not the only technology affected. Virtual Box users have exactly the same issue. It seems that Windows 8 requires NX and SS2, and we seem to make this available, but it does not work.
