[Qemu-devel] [resend]Crashing early in XP i386 guest install with a virtio block driver enabled.

Resent as I've not seen a trace of the first one in 12 hours..
I'm running git (as of 5 minutes ago) on an AMD Phenom 97xx. Debian stable, 64
bit self compiled kernel.
I've got qemu-system-x86_64 symlinked to qemu
My minimal test case is ...
qemu -drive if=virtio,file=xp_base.qcow2 -cdrom XP.iso -boot d
XP gets half way though loading the storage drivers and errors with
"An unexpected error (769) occurred at
line 5218 in d:\xpsp\base\boot\setup\setup.c.
Press any key to continue"
This error appears to not be terminal as you can press a key and move on, but it only happens with
the virtio block driver configured. It is reproducible using a vanilla XP iso.
I've tried it with raw/qcow2/vmdk images and it bombs in the same place.
Interestingly enough, if file=/dev/null then it continues on until it realises it can't go any
further as there is no hard disk it can see.
I first encountered this with the current qemu-kvm head, but it's reproducible completely with the
current vanilla git qemu and kvm switched off.
I'd guess it's hardly on the radar of stuff to fix but while I was toying with a self-contained XP
guest disk with the virtio drivers installed I bumped up against it and I thought someone might want
to know about it.
