I tried starting the VM in graphical env with virt-manager.  The VM

libvirtError: internal error Domain DOMAIN-1 didn't show up

So it doesn't look like this is a guest distro issue.  How can I track
down what is wrong?

See if there are any errors in /var/log/libvirt/qemu/<vmname>.log. See if
disabling selinux (setenforce 0) helps at all.

Ignore the Trackback. Found a typo in my xml that I used to define the domain.

Now when I try to start the guest in virt-manager it says "Console not configured for guest". I guess my console args didn't get into grub.cfg.

So I'm back to trying to boot a rescue kernel.


The 'console' in that message refers to the graphical console, which it
sounds like you didn't configure for the guest. You are best off trying
'virsh console <vmname>', but it will only work on the physical machine
that the guest is running (serial console does not work remotely yet).

I just pushed a virt-manager change to clarify that 'console' message:

I booted the ubuntu iso and got into rescue mode and I could see that my console args did make it into grub.cfg. The problem was that upstart did not have a serial console started so I had to configure one. So then I got console output remotely through ssh but for some reason not on the physical console which stopped output at "GRUB Loading". But now I have what looks to be a grub2 issue when the guest boots, it just says "error: invalid magic number" then "Failed to boot default entries."
