I have a small problem with libvirt / qemu. I have created a guest (also gentoo) on a gentoo hosts and when I start it from the command-line the guests starts OK, but when I start the guest through libvirt with "virsh start" I get "Booting from Hard Disk...
Boot failed: not a bootable disk
No bootable device"
This is the command-line I use to start the guest (which works)
"cd /var/lib/kvm/Wilmer; /usr/bin/qemu-system-x86_64 --enable-kvm
-net nic,vlan=1,model=rtl8139,macaddr=DE:ED:BE:EF:01:03 -net tap,vlan=1,ifname=qtap13,script=no,downscript=no
-net nic,vlan=3,model=rtl8139,macaddr=DE:ED:BE:EF:03:03 -net tap,vlan=3,ifname=qtap33,script=no,downscript=no
-m 2048 -k de-ch -vnc :3 -daemonize
The libvirt XML-file was created using "virsh domxml-from-native qemu-argv" and this is the result of that conversion:
You obviously know more about libvirt than I do, but I'm wondering about
that 'hd'. qemu knows enough to interpret Wilmer.qcow2 as the boot disk,
but maybe libvirt isn't that smart.
I'd maybe try using an explicit '-hda Wilmer.qcow2' in your original script
so virsh doesn't need to assume anything while converting it.
