I cannot install 64bit vista into KVM guest.
The installtion failed with blue screen.

Reproduce steps:

use qemu-system-x86_64 to install 64bit vista image.
Following is the cmd:
qemu-system-x86_64 -hda kvm_vista_RTM_smp_acpi_32e.img -net
nic,macaddr=00:16:3e:44:de:5e,model=rtl8139 -net tap,script=/etc/kvm/qemu-ifup -m 1024 -
cdrom /share/xvs/img/installation/Vistaamd64.iso -boot d

    Boot up 32bit vista guest has the same issue.

    I presume you tested with KVM-36, right ?

    Windows Vista guests (both 32-bit and 64-bit) fails on KVM-36 on both AMD64 and Intel64 processors.

    Is there any way to change the title to "Windows Vista fails" ?

    Update: Avi asks to check KVM with different BIOSes:

    Both 32bit and 64bit vista cannot be booted up and installed into KVM guest.

    yunfeng, this bug was inserted in kvm-36 bios,
    we are working on a fix for this (it beacuse revision acpi is now able to be set to 2)
    for now you can use the bios found in kvm-35 with kvm-36.

    thanks.
