I started with virt-manager, and got the above error messages.
then I found some potential fixes using the command line:
Here's the command lines I tried:
sudo kvm -m 512 -cdrom /dev/cdrom1 -boot d /var/lib/libvirt/images/windoze.img
sudo kvm -m 512 -cdrom /dev/cdrom1 -boot c /var/lib/libvirt/images/windoze.img
That didn't work either.
There's a bug filed against this problem with the EXCEEDINGLY UNHELPFUL advice to use the qemu command line to run things, without any sort of example of what those commands should look like.
There is aqemu. It is gui for qemu and it is really user friendly.
