RE: [Fedora-xen] keyboard/mouse problems during win2k3 installation



I have had keyboard/mouse problems after the install in the FC5 guest
install in x86 mode for both host/guest.

It was an Apple Intel machine and I could not find a workaround. I then
installed it with no graphics on boot up. But I had several other
problems like VNC issues plaguing me...

I do not have a workaround. I only share the same set of problems at a
different time.

Subject: [Fedora-xen] keyboard/mouse problems during win2k3 installation

I am able to install windows 2003 64-bit on FC6 64-bit Dell Precision 
490 until the win2k3 installer gets to asking about name/org and product

id, then the keyboard and mouse stops working alltogether in the virtual

machine. I've tried virt-install, virt-manger and modified example.hvm 
file. I've also played with using vnc or sdl and turning on/off usb 
without success. Has  anyone else encountered this problem and found a 
workaround?
