[Qemu-devel] Testing with Win2k SP3 and Win2kSP4

User-agent: Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0 (Windows/20041206)

 I recently tested qemu. The configuration i used:
 Host: Win2k SP4
 Guests tested: Win2k SP3 and Win2k SP4
 Network: User-net
 Command Line used:
START /MIN qemu.exe -L . -pci -localtime -cirrusvga -user-net -boot c -hda image.dsk
 Qemu version: Nightly builds on freeoszoo during the last week.

Guest win2k was installed using qemu and an image of Win2kSP3 made using real hardware. This image has been tested at least 40 times on a wide array of hardware and it works without problems.

Summary of problems:
-Windows update doesn't work due to failed Schannel (SSL and others channel implementation). Maybe schannel depends on hardware to gather entropy?
-Microsoft installer doesn't work.

Has anybody else tested Qemu with Win2k SP>2 guest and usernet? Any similar problems? Any suggestions?

 Linux as a guest works perfectly under qemu.

Detailed description:

-"Antivir Guard" antivirus keeps trying to enable itself. The tray icon switches on and off constantly. I disabled it.

-"Microsoft Installer fails". Ms office cannot open as a result of this. When the image goes into a new computer, the first time somebody tries to open an office application the Installer gets invoked. Installer fails under qemu so Word cannot open. An event log for failed msiinstaller concerning auto update follows.
Event Log for Installer:
Source MsiInstaller, Type:Error, Event ID:10000
The description for Event ID ( 10000 ) in Source ( MsiInstaller ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messafes from a remote computer. The following information is part of the even: Product: Microsoft Windows Update Auto Update -- Microsoft Windows Update Auto Update requires Windows 2000 SP2 or Windows XP., (NULL), (NULL), (NULL), (NULL), (NULL), (NULL)

-Windows cannot display "Add/Remove Programs". This seems to be tied to the above.

-Schannel fail
For some reason schannel fails. This blocks Windows Update:
Error Log:
Source: Schannel, Type:Error, Event ID:36865
A fatal error occured while opening the system RSA cryptographi module. Operations that require the SSL or TLS cryptographi protocols will not work correctly. The error code is 0x57.
--Windows Update
Windows Update Error
Windows Update has encountered an error. This may be due to a discrepancy in your computer's time setting.

 Hope the above are helpfull.
