Default Issues with fresh debian wheezy with libvirt/kvm :- help please

Hi all

I did a fresh installation of debian wheezy
After installing, I have installed virt-manager which as a part of
dependency installed libvirt, virt-viewer and kvm and all necessary stuff

I am able to boot from cdrom giving the virtual machine a SCSI disk to
install. The installation goes fine but after the installation, the
machine does not boot from SCSI disk.

The install command was:

virt-install --name BHASKER_debian --ram 1024 --cdrom
/tmp/debian-testing-amd64-netinst.iso --disk
path=/VIRT/disks/DEBIAN,bus=scsi --network bridge=virt,model=e1000 --cpu
core2duo --vcpus 2 --cpuset=1,2 --graphics vnc

Running the qemu command seperately like this

kvm -drive file=/VIRT/disks/DEBIAN,if=scsi,boot=on works perfectly well
but under libvirt the machine goes to network boot and then fails booting.


Is someone facing this issue or is it just me ? Am I doing anything
wrong here ? Can someone help me here please ?


I have tried to capture as much information with this mail but in case I
miss anything can you please get back to me.
