Based on https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=457199
"And we're including that patch now in F-8, F-9 and F-10" libxc bzImage
support should be fine in Fedora 8 (with all the updates installed).

Then there's the problem with python-virtinst.. 

I guess python-virtinst in Fedora 8 cannot handle F10 guests? 

Latest version in F8 updates seems to be: python-virtinst-0.300.2-4.fc8 

Which looks too old to support F10 guests..

So maybe you have to update python-virtinst in F8 and then try again?
