Re: [Xen-users] My first Windows VM

And what about logs (it changed in some way)?
Did You tried changing your
device_model = "/usr/lib64/xen/bin/qemu-dm"

and use viridian=1 ?

Subject: Re: [Xen-users] My first Windows VM

I thought of that too so I tried another image, same thing.

So far I've tried Windows 2008 2012 Server. Both lock up at the same place.

I was able to manually install the desktop on 2012 from the ISO so, its
not that. On a side note, 2012 is DOG slow! I'll have to see if installing
the PV drivers will help that.

I'll try Win XP and 2000. The goal is to find a good Win platform that can
run Filemaker Server.

I wanted the latest OS for security etc but at this point, it looks like a
ton of overkill.

Here's what I have for a working config file.

memory = 8192
maxmem = 8192
name = 'win-2012-server'
vif = [ 'ip=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx,mac=00:16:3e:0E:63:BA' ]
address = 'xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx'
netmask = ''
disk =
boot = 'dc'
on_reboot = 'restart'
on_poweroff = 'restart'
kernel = "/usr/lib/xen/boot/hvmloader"
builder = "hvm"
device_model = "/usr/lib64/xen/bin/qemu-dm"
acpi = 1
pae = 1
vnc = 1
vnclisten = ""
vncunused = 1
vncpasswd = "xxxxxxxx"

In looking through examples of config files for Windows, there area bunch
of extra options. Do they really make a big difference?

Is there any possibility of corruption in your ISO image? i.e. on some
bit which is only used for GUI/Desktop?
