Hello,

While attempting to install windoze 2k8r2 it bluescreens right after the 'loading windoze' part. I have tracked the error down to using '-cpu host'. It seems to function while using qemu64.

The stop message is something like "STOP 0x000007A"

Anyone seen this/figured a way around it besides using qemu64 as the host cpu?

Thanks,
James

what physical CPU do you have on your host?

Hello James,

I've encountered similar problems (post http://forum.proxmox.com/threads/9381-BSOD-while-installing-Windows-2011-SBS) :
Could you try with :

rmmod kvm-intel kvm
modprobe kvm ignore_msrs=1
modprobe kvm-intel

Hope this helps,

Thomas

Unfortunately I can't do that on a production system. However, we are scheduled for a reboot soon to upgrade to Proxmox 2.1 , I will attempt it then and report back.

Ok ...

If this works and you want to keep this setting at next reboot , put this in your /etc/modprobe.d/local :

options kvm ignore_msrs=1
