I'm trying to run Hiren's BootCD on QEMU but it throws a hardware error 0x80000021 on a Core 2 Duo, maybe there is some parameter missing to fix that.
$ kvm --version QEMU emulator version 1.0 (qemu-kvm-1.0), Copyright (c) 2003-2008 Fabrice Bellard $ uname -a Linux tiago-pc 3.2.0-37-generic #58-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jan 24 15:28:10 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux $ lsb_release -r Release: 12.04 $ cat /proc/cpuinfo output file: http://pastebin.com/7afK8dZ6 $ kvm -m 512 -cdrom PATH_TO_THE_FILE/HBCD_15.2.iso -boot once=d KVM: entry failed, hardware error 0x80000021
The boot list is shown, but doesn't matter which option I choose it always gives the same error, I've tried on qemu-system-i386 and qemu-system-x86_64 as well, resulting in the same problem.
I do upgrade and dist-upgrade every day, and I've just tried to run it on 12.10 livecd (of course, without upgrade), unless it was fixed after the release the problem still happens!
Some sites I found with this error says to add the parameter -cpu core2duo or -enable-kvm but it didn't solve the bug.
