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
[root f10 /]# cat /etc/fstab

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.

Ooops....too fast on my part...you are on F10.  Bad UUID was on F11 alpha.  Sorry for the noise.

okay , I was wondering what could be the problem with my qemu/kvm + f10. The same F10 ISO I installed with virt-manager(with kvm) and it "just works".
