#9657 closed bug (no change required)

DriveSetup can not format partition on QEMU qcow2 disk (hrev45480 gcc2h)

Reported by: tidux Owned by: stippi
Priority: high Milestone: R1/beta1
Component: Applications/DriveSetup Version: R1/Development
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Has a Patch: no Platform: All


Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create 8GB qcow2 image with qemu-img
  2. Boot KVM with hrev45480 gcc2h anyboot as virtual CD and 8GB qcow2 as HDD
  3. Run DriveSetup, and initialize HDD with Intel or GUID Partition Map
  4. Create partition filling virtual drive
  5. Attempt to format as BeFS

This will pop up an alert saying "Could not write to disk: General system error."

I attempted to blank the MBR with dd to clear out whatever might have been causing the problem (dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/disk/atapi/1/raw bs=512 count=1), but the return message from dd said that it wrote 0 bytes.
