[Qemu-devel] [PATCH] hw/acpi: fix Q35 support for legacy Windows OS

From: Marcel Apfelbaum
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH] hw/acpi: fix Q35 support for legacy Windows OS
Date: Sun, 6 Mar 2016 14:17:56 +0200

Legacy Windows operating systems like Windows XP and Windows 2003
require _DIS method to be present for all interrupt links.

PC machines already have a no-op implemented for GSI links, add
it also in Q35.

I tested this patch with WinXP and Win 2003, but also with Win 10, and Fedora.
This solves a BSOD early in the setup process.

WinXP/2003 can be tested using:
     -device piix3-ide,id=legacyide \
     -drive file=winxp-q35.qcow2,if=none,id=disk -device 
ide-hd,drive=disk,bus=legacyide.0 \
     -drive file=xp_sp3.iso,if=none,id=cdrom -device 

Please note that you have to use the piix3-ide because Win2003 (and probably XP)
does not have Q35 AHCI drivers inbox.
