Description of problem:

Installation with ahci interface failed because of "Storage Activation Failed: input/output error during read on /dev/sda"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the installation with ahci interface
qemu -name virt-tests-vm1 -nodefaults \
-device ahci,id=ahci,addr=0x5 \
-drive file=RHEL-Server-6.4-64.qcow2,if=none,id=ahci0,media=disk,cache=unsafe,snapshot=off,format=qcow2,aio=native -device ide-drive,bus=ahci.0,drive=ahci0 \
-device e1000,netdev=idvo2fOy,mac=9a:0e:0f:10:11:12,bus=pci.0,addr=0x3,id=idtzF4wm \
-netdev tap,id=idvo2fOy -m 32768 -smp 16,maxcpus=16,cores=4,threads=2,sockets=2 \
-cpu SandyBridge \
-M pc \
-drive file=RHEL6.4-Server-x86_64.iso,index=2,if=none,id=drive-ide0-0-0,media=cdrom,format=raw -device ide-drive,bus=ide.0,unit=0,drive=drive-ide0-0-0 \
-device usb-tablet,id=usb-tablet1,bus=usb1.0,port=1 \
-spice port=5900,disable-ticketing \
-vga qxl \
-global qxl-vga.vram_size=33554432 -rtc base=utc,clock=host,driftfix=slew -boot order=cdn,once=d,menu=off -no-kvm-pit-reinjection -no-shutdown -enable-kvm

2. Continue to install, and when activating storage configuration
It prompts "Storage Activation Failed: input/output error during read on /dev/sda"

Actual results:

Installation aborts

Expected results:
Installation should be finished.

Additional info:

Install for guest rhel7, DiskLabelCommitError: Could not commit to disk /dev/sda would happen and then quit the installation.
Comment 4 xhan 2013-07-31 20:39:04 EDT
Test on qemu-kvm-1.5.0-2.el7.x86_64, there is no this issue happens. Intallation can proceed.

Set this issue as a regression.

1. Reproduce this bug on the following version:

(1) The guest in comment 0 is RHEL.6.4, but according to comment 6, ahci is not supported in RHEL.6.
   I think we can ignore this. (ps. I can reproduce the error in the summary)

(2) Tested with RHEL.7.0 guest, met the following error, which is similar to bz981723.
'Buffer I/O error on device sda, logical block 0'
'Buffer I/O error on device sda, logical block 1'
'Buffer I/O error on device sda, logical block 2'
'Buffer I/O error on device sda, logical block 3'
sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Unhandled error code

2. Installation pass with qemu-kvm-1.5.3-66.el7.x86_64.

As the above info, I think this bug is a dup to bz981723.

Thanks for the information, Cong!

Given that AHCI is technically unsupported to begin with /and/ it is fixed in 1.5.3-66, I think we can safely close this.
