Subject [Solved] Re: Ubuntu 12.04 guest having problems with additional disks
Date Thu, 29 Nov 2012 09:21:21 GMT
The disks were not being added to the qemu xmls, so this was clearly not
the guest fault.
As suggested on Administration Guide: "Note: Generally you should not
choose an older version of the OS than the version in the image. For
example, choosing CentOS 5.3 to support a CentOS 5.4 image will in general
not work. In those cases you should choose Other."

Well, this doesn't seem to fall inside that "generally". Following that
advice, i choosed "Other Ubuntu (64 bit)", but for Ubuntu 12.04 - 64 bit,
you must choose "Ubuntu 10.04 (64 bit)" or additional disks will not work.
Everything else seems to be running fine this way. I'll post back If I find
any caveats on this.
