Hi!

I created a vm on ubuntu 9.04 with

virt-install --force --connect qemu:///system -n testserver -r 512 -f \
testserver-virtual-disk -s 20 -c openSUSE-10.3-GM-KDE-i386.iso \
--os-type linux --os-variant sles10 -w bridge:br0 \
--vnc --noautoconsole

but the vm gives me the follwing error during boot:

    Booting from Harddisk ...
    Boot failed: Not a bootable disk.

    FATAL: No bootable device

Of cource i want to boot from the CD-Image, not from the harddisk. But i
don't know how to achieve this.

Thanks for any help!


Whats the output when you run the above command with --debug? What is the
output in /var/log/libvirt/qemu/${vmname}.log

Thanks to your hint with the logfile i can now boot. It seems, that the problem was, that there where other inactive vms, which accessed the same iso-file. if i destroy and undefine them all, i can boot.

... but now i have the problem, that linuxrc crashes ...

Thanks for help!

regards, Benni
