Bug Description

Binary package hint: kvm

Using kvm 1:84+dfsg-0ubuntu11 (for what it's worth, it happens when using -hda as well). Curiously, the image works fine when written to a USB disk.

Starting program: /usr/bin/kvm -m 768 -drive file=ubuntu-usb-9.04.img,if=ide,boot=on

Can you give me the output of "file ubuntu-usb-9.04.img" and also tell me whether this happens immediately or after a while using the virtual machine?

I suspect this is a dup of 359447
