[Qemu-devel] [Bug 618533] Re: OpenSolaris guest fails to see the Solaris partitions of a physical disk in qemu-kvm-9999 (GIT)

Qemu's version of partition table is gotten using a OpenSolaris b134
livecd because I couldn't really boot the disk.
Basically, somehow all the slice labels are missing when booted in Qemu.
OpenSolaris thinks that /dev/sdd3 (which is a primary Solaris 'bf' type
partition) is not sliced. Hence, its showing 2 unmountable slices and 1
When booted in VirtualBox, the correct slice table is seen. We can see
slice 0 being 'root' slice of about 16GB, slice 1 being 'swap' slice of
size about 6GB and slice 6 being the 'data' slice of about 26GB.

The prtvtoc output is attached from both VirtualBox and Qemu-KVM. As can be
seen in the screenshots, a valid Solaris partition table (which is inside the
/dev/sdd3, marked 'bf' in Linux fdisk output) is not seen in Qemu but seen in
This makes the guest unbootable in Qemu because the root FS is not found but
its bootable in Virtualbox.
