Only with kvm. AMD-64.

By the way, QEMU version 0.9.1 is out.

Using it may help.

jens: did QEMU version 0.9.1 solve your problems?

Sadly, ... no.
Qemu seems to have some weird acpi problems (It did went a lot further though).

I tried it with kvm and virtual box on my Slackware laptop and that did work (that system isn't powerful enough though).

If everything else fails, I'll just try VB on Etch.

PS: I only need vista to test some compatibility issues, so it doesn't even need to run perfect. I'd really like to stick with Qemu/KVM though...

That's a shame. I might have to try Qemu (no KVM) on a friends machine. I will let you know how things turn out.

Looks like that won't be happening.

I assume you have tried the -no-acpi option

What do you expect?
Nobody even knows what physical hardware vista works with for sure.

Yeah. Although it runs with Vista, I use it with XP.

I just like XP better.

Is this with the ultimate-super-duper edition?
Me thinks there is something in the EULA about the home and whatever else editions not being allowed to run in a VM.Or was it not being allowed to run VM's?

I was using the home edition. Does the ultimate-super-duper edition do anything extra for you as far as Qemu is concerned?

It's only a legal matter.
Their license does mention your not allowed to use it as a VM.

A license doesn't meant everything though.
Stating something in *any* license doesn't make that automatically true.

It still depends on local copyright law.

I don't care much about licenses in that respect - way I see it what you do at home with your software is nobodys concern.
What I don't know is if they disabled some things you might need in order to use the home version in a VM.

Nope. Everything seems to work.

Did I say that for Vista: Except for anything that needs a decent video card.
