WXP Guest KVM CD problem
I'm big time stuck and need help. Got WXP Pro loaded as guest using KVM
and can access and it using the Virtual Machine Manager BUT can't use
the CD at all.
Truth is that the guest will NOT come up unless I have a cd in the
cd/dvd drive. A blank one works but there must be a cd in the drive in
order for the system to come up.
It seems that this is a result of the XP install where the install cd
must be in the drive because XP requires a reboot to finish the install
but when that's over I can't get the system to eject the cd thru the new
guest OS or the manager. I can remove it by going to the host and such
but only the host recognizes a new cd if one is put in the drive. When
I go back to the guest it just recognizes there is a cd in the drive but
that's it. I can't open the drive, eject a disc or anything else using
the guest os (XP) or even the Virtual Machine Manager. I can't do
ANYTHING with the cd that it will recognize at all.
Anyone got an idea how to handle this? I'm lost I've got internet
access and sound and mouse and keyboard et al. Everything seems to work
fine except the cd access situation where the system seems won't let me
remove the "install" cd.
Any help will be appreciated.
Again, thanks in advance. It works great but I need to be able to
install using some of my own install disks for some older and newer
programs requiring Windows.
PS: the trick using cntrl + alt + a number(1-9) won't work either.
Can't get to qemu thru that access point either. I think I'm supposed
to be able to but it does nothing when used.
