At which point do you receive the error message? 

I ran into a similar problem where an xp guest would loose its mapping/path
to the install media or image after the initial reboot during the XP

After several months of banging my head against a wall, I finally found an
interface to set it manually in the machine details screen> Hardware Tab.
Setting the variable here will reconnect the device upon the next guest

A quick Google revealed this is a common issue but I was not able to find
the solution posted anywhere. When I have some time, I plan on posting it in
a few of the popular fedora forums.

Hopefully this helps, if not repost with a few more specifics and one of the
veterans may be able to steer you in the right direction.

Hi all,

This is probably a stupid question, but I can't figure it out...

I want to try Virtual Machine Manager.
When I create a new machine, there is asked for a "Install Media url".

I want to install FreeBSD as a virtual machine, however, what url should I
specify then?
Or is this only for redhat systems? (fedora/centos?)

This is the fix:


It's not in F8, so feel free to open a bug about it if you wish.
