Comment 20 for bug 105195

I get the error reading hard drive after first windows attempt to reboot. It does not matter if I use virt-install
virt-install --connect qemu:///system -n xpsp2 -r 1024 -f /home/rodney/vservers/sambar/sambar.qcow2 -s 100 -c /home/rodney/iso/xp_corp_sp2.iso --vnc --noautoconsole --os-type windows --os-variant winxp -hvm

or virt-manager

Here's a tail -f of the log if it helps
