Re: [virt-tools-list] vm fails to boot, need to modify guest registry



I'll give that a shot. Someone else suggested changing the disk order in the xml file, but when I run guestfish on each disk, the order is already correct in the xml file.

I'll dig into the boot.ini idea.

Did W2K3 use BCD or BOOT.INI?  If it was old enough to use BOOT.INI
then you might try editing it:

# guestfish -i -d WinXPRecConsole
<fs>  edit /boot.ini
and I think change all disk(0) ->  disk(1) (or maybe rdisk(0) ->  rdisk(1)?)

Rich.
