I'm trying to transition my WindowsXP guest from VirtualBox to KVM.
I converted the disk image like this:
qemu-img convert -O qcow2 WindowsXP.vmdk WindowsXP.qemu
And I try to run it like this on my Fedora 16 host:
qemu-kvm -boot c -vnc :3 -m 1G -hda /vm/WindowsXP.qemu \
-name corew -net nic,name=corew \
-net tap,script=no,downscript=no,ifname=tap2 \
-usb -usbdevice tablet &
But it starts, crashes, gives me a blue screen, restarts so fast I can't read the blue screen, and the cycle repeats. I'm given the choice to start it in safe mode, but it's nearly the same.
What else should I check or try?
Has anyone successfully transitioned from VirtualBox to KVM without reinstalling Windows?
I already moved it from VMWare to VirtualBox, but I can't remember if I reinstalled or not.
