RE: [virt-tools-list] Can't select partition when creating VirtualMachine



Well, I finally figured out what my problem was. It seems that I was configuring my storage as a disk, but associating it with a partition, so Windows was treating the partition as an entire disk. I’ve reconfigured the virtual machine to use the entire disk rather than just the partition, and now it boots perfectly.

 

This begs the question though, what if I want to just assign a partition to the virtual machine?

I was finally able to install my Virtual Machine on a physical partition, but I was unable to get it to boot from that partition. I eventually manipulated the storage in the virtual machine manager prior to creating the host. I was able to install, but am still unable to boot.

 

Any thoughts?

Hey guys,

 

I originally posted this on Fedora Forums, but it was suggested that I post this here. I consider myself to be an expert PC user, but not an expert Linux user. Anyway, here is the original post:

 

“I'm installing WindowsXP as a virtual machine on Fedora 11, but the screens in the Virtual Machine Manager don't match those in the help file. I want to use an actual partition instead of an image file, but it isn't offered as an option.

Do I have the wrong version of QEMU or the Virtual Machine Manager? I just installed them today, so they're from the FC11 packages.

Also, to get the OS to install, I had to use generic machine rather than specifying the OS. I'm not sure why.”

 

ThanX
