How do I install Windows 2008 on a Debian+KVM+libvirt host?
Posted on 2009-05-07
I'm trying to install a Windows Server 2008 x86_64 guest on a Debian Lenny x86_64 host with KVM and libvirt.
All components are at the default versions from the Debian repositories, so I have KVM 72, which, according to the KVM site, can run Windows Server 32bit on 32 bit guests and Windows Server 2008 32bit and 64bit on 64bit guests.
Unfortunately, the Windows installer goes bluescreen after the initial screen (language and locale selection). As this is my first experience with virtualization, I'm at a loss as to what I need to do to troubleshoot the problem, and Internet resources seem slim.
I could use some hints, or a pointer to helpful documentation.
