I am using Feisty 7.04 with kernel 2.6.20-12-generic

I upgraded to kvm-18 and still did not get w2k running.
There was a thread on this topic under
http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.emulators.kvm.devel/1860
and the patch posted there is included in kvm-18, but the installer still stops when it comes to the first reboot

# empty disk
kvm-18/bin/qemu-img create -f qcow w2k-srv.img 10G

# boot from cd
kvm-18/bin/qemu -cdrom iso/w2k-srv.iso -boot d -hda w2k-srv.img -m 384 -noacpi

without the -no-acpi the installation hangs during the first file copy phase of the windows installer
