Subject AW: Run Windows on top of KVM+virtio? Watch out for Windows updates, system unbootable!
Date Thu, 10 Dec 2015 11:58:03 GMT
Hi,

you can use the virtio drivers from the Fedora Project.
I didn't have problems on W2k12 and W2k12R2.

Betreff: Run Windows on top of KVM+virtio? Watch out for Windows updates, system unbootable!

Hi,

Just a quick heads-up! 
Someone on the CentOS ML reported his Windows 2008r2 VM on top of KVM+VirtIO PV ended up unbootable
after he installed the SUSE Network and Storage drivers from the Optional Updates channel.
I've just checked now and it's the case, the system blue screens after reboot. Will test 2012r2
shortly.


It'd be best if you don't install those updates/drivers for now, looks like someone in Redmond
didn't do his homework.
