command line virt-install problems


hola,

so i am running into some issues here; I'm trying to learn everything through the command prompt once i understand how to do it in the GUI.

I did this already in the GUI and it works fine; I'm trying to do it in command prompt and it's not working it doesn't load up at all just a black screen or a black screen with the following error
kvm: 5657: cpu0 unimplememted perfctr wrmsr

this is the command i type into the command prompt; i have shut down, restarted done this and done that i don't know what is wrong. i don't know what is different. I even changed the ks.cfg file from sda to vda.

this is what i type into the console
virt-install -n outsider1.example.org -r 1200 \
--disk path=/home/username/KVM/outsider1.example.org.img,size=20 \
-l ftp://192.168.122.1/pub/inst
--vcpus 2 \
-x "ks=ftp://192.168.122.1/pub/ks.cfg"

then it says
starting install...
retrieving file...
blah
blah blah


let me know if you need anything else, ill get the log files too in 2nd post
