Device Timeout while installing in QEmu

Reported by: miffe Owned by: nobody
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: - General Version: R1/alpha2
Keywords: Cc: planche2k@…
Blocked By: Blocking:
Platform: x86


Everytime I try to install haiku in qemu it will fail with a kernel panic saying it could not write back block or read block due to device timeout. It never happens on the same place. MD5sum of the ISO is correct. Doesn't matter if installing to a hard drive or image file, and whether kvm is enabled or not.

cmd: qemu -hda /dev/sda -cdrom haiku-r1alpha2.iso -boot d -enable-kvm

Which QEMU version? Which distro?

/dev/sda looks a bit scary ... is it a partition unused in Linux? When installing to an image file, which image format (raw/qcow2/...) did you use? Does the Live CD work when not using -hda?

comment:2 by miffe, 11 years ago

qemu 0.12.4-1 in archlinux.

When using /dev/sda as hda the partition I'm installing to is unused by linux. When using an image I have tried both raw and qcow2 formats, no difference. When used as a Live CD it does work. But if mount the disk and start using it it will crash after a little while.

Could you try with qemu 0.12.5 or upper?

No response. Multiple users use QEMU/KVM with no issues; assuming fixed.
