Virtual machine specs are identical. On one system (the Thinkpad),
Fedora boots directly (and quickly). On the desktop system, during
boot, Fedora seems to be trying to access some hundred or so devices
from SDA through SDDZ, taking close to 30 minutes to get into the real
boot process. Both were installed from the DVD .iso downloaded with
Has anyone run into a similar issue, and (hopefully) figured out
how to get around it. I'm hopeful it's a configuration file

I lied. The virtual hard drives for the VM on the Thinkpad emulated
IDE drives; when defining the VM on the ThinkCentre I took the
"recommendation" and emulated SCSI drives. We won't go into the fact
that virtual machines running kubuntu on the same two hosts both use
SCSI emulation without a hitch.
