Running Fedora 12 188.8.131.52-115.fc12.i686.PAE on Quad-Core AMD Opteron 2352.
Built a VM with the following command:
$ sudo virt-install \
--disk path=/var/lib/libvirt/images/rhel6-x86_64.img \
I got a warning during the install that the disk was corrupted and needed to be re-initialized. I allowed the install to re-initialize the disk, and all proceeded normally.
However, the VM did not reboot, and when I try to start the new VM, whether from virsh or virt-manager, I get the following error.
Error starting domain: internal error unable to start guest: qemu: could not open disk image : No such file or directory
I did a lot of googling of the problem, but I could not figure out what exactly to do from the sites I visited.
Getting the idea from some of the sites that there may have been a permissions problem, I tried moving the file out of /var/lib/libvirt/images into my /home/user directory, and editing the virtual machine's xml file accordingly, but I still get the same error.
Details of the error:
