There is no problem to run an existing windows xp in qemu on a x86 32
bit linux host. There is no problem to install and run windows xp in
qemu from a disk image file on x86 64 bit linux host.
Interestingly, I tried KVM and Virtualbox. I got the same error message
for both of them. Since both KVM and Virtualbox use some modules from
qemu, I guess the root cause is in qemu. So I first report this bug here.
The above machine is Lenovo ThinkPad T61 with Intel Core 2 Duo T7300 and
100G hard disk.
I just tried to run an existing windows xp partition in qemu on my pc,
which is Dell Inspiron 531 and has an AMD Athlon64 X2 3800+ and 80G hard
disk. Qemu can boot the xp.
