Qemu / Xen - Problems changing cdrom media
I have tried desperately all day to try and get a virtual machine running with Windows XP on Fedora
I have a genuine Windows XP upgrade disk and a genuine copy of windows 98.
The way I've installed XP in the past is to boot from the XP disk and part way through it requests a valid upgrade option disk, which is when I insert the Windows 98 disk. It then, normally, carries on and installs XP.
However, I'm running into problems with this disk swap.
When I get the virtual machine to boot the XP disk all is well up until it ask for the disk to be inserted with the Windows 98 on it. I have tried performing the "change -f cdrom ...." with qemu and also with xen via the gnome virtual manager but all to no avail. Windows keeps telling me that the disk is invalid and please insert a valid one.
Has anyone else experience this and more importantly, resolved it.
Thanks for your help.
Obviously, any questions and I'll endeavour to help.
