XP guest install fails with NTFS format error
Ubuntu 9.10 on AMD6400X2, 2G RAM, all updates applied as of date of bug report
Latest qemu-kvm installed (0.11)
XP guest install (XP Pro SP2) fails when attempting to format the install partition (10G) as NTFS with the error "Setup was unable to format the partition. The disk may be damaged". 512M memory allocated to VM, one processor allocated. No additional qemu options specified.
However, can successfully format partition as FAT and complete install. However, after so doing, scheduled an NTFS convert on next reboot of guest. When the virtual machine was shut down and restarted, it immediately failed with a 'missing NTLDR' error. This occurred before the NTFS conversion took place.
Deleted all VMs and associated files and rebooted. Recreated the VM and retried the install. Failed on format exactly as before. Disk subsystem scanned, no errors found, no hardware problems have occurred previously, this is a highly stable testbed machine which has been in use for years.
