Hi folks,

so has any one seen this weird behaviour, or is it me  ?

what I'm trying to do : Install an F10 virtual machine  via qemu-kvm .
(from the shell) . On a lenovo X200 running F10.

How : I used the below

   #sudo qemu-img create -f qcow2 f10.qcow2 10G
   #sudo qemu-kvm -m 1024 -boot d -cdrom /export/isos/F10-i686-Live.iso
-hda f10.qcow2 -localtime

Here,I did an install on hard drive, once all the packages are
installed, it fails to reboot(the screen blacks out). Now I try to
invoke the VM via
#sudo qemu-kvm fedora10.qcow2

Result : the below error is what I'm thrown.

could not detect stabilization, waiting 10 seconds

Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while

found volume group "volgroup00" using metadata type lvm2
unable to access resume device (/dev/VolGroup00/LogVo101)

mount: error mounting /dev/root on /sysroot as ext3 : no such file or

Other Info:
(1) I booted into "single" user mode, and my  /etc/fstab says the below

Does anyone see anything weird here??

Please let me know if any other information is required.

I believe you have hit the initrd fails to see root=UUID=etc, etc. Substitute the actual partition name, i.e.,

 root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 in the grub.conf kernel line.

The upgrade rpm, then rest of upgrades.
