Hi! For the curious, I was built QEMU from CVS sources and loaded the following over the weekend:
Host: Win XP Home, 512M RAM, SP2, 2.4 GHz
Guest: Win 2003, SP 1 + RC 2 (trial version download from Microsoft)
My command line was:
start /b "qemu" .\qemu.exe -L . -m 192 -cdrom x11-03905.iso -hda disk1.img -hdb disk2.img -localtime -net user -net nic,model=rtl8139 %1 %2

disk1.img and disk2.img are the same size and I created them with the built in fsutil program.

My first reboot after setting up the image reported a disk error after the BIOS check, and before any Windows stuff loaded. After a fresh start of QEMU, I have not seen that error again.

However, Windows Activation will not run. I had not specified the network card model during the initial install, and if there is a default, Windows did not find it. So, the network card was added after the system was already running, and the Activation program was waiting in the system tray. Whenever I run the Activation program, part of the window loads, and the guest system enters an infinite loop. Windows will eventually report this as STOP 0xEA on the cirrus driver, dump physical memory, and reboot.

In contrast, Firefox runs just fine on the guest system.
