2017-02-09 Thread balue96
I have the same Problem :( 

When I change the model type to Cirrus,then appear a libvirtError that doesn't 
make any sense to me: 

Orignal Message: libvirt.libvirtError: Operation schlug fehl: Domain 
'win7x64test2' ist bereits mit UUID ----  
definiert

In english it should be something like: libvirt.libvirtError: operation failed: 
Domain 'win7x64test2' already exists with UUID 
----

The Original command that I run:
qvm-start win7x64test2 --cdrom=/home/dave/Schreibtisch/win7_x64.iso 
--custom-config=/home/dave/Schreibtisch/win7x64test2.conf

Can anyone help me please??

Great tip, Scot!
Doing that I was able to move on into the install process.

Being a long-time proxmox user, it never occurred to me that look there for 
tips (my understanding is that proxmox is kvm- or lxc-based, and since Qubes is 
trying to move away from qemu-related stuff that sort of things would not apply 
here).

So, for the record, storage pools and specific Lenovo X250 had nothing to do 
with this Windows 7 "no further than glowing logo" issue.

Thanks again!

I don't have any answers, but a data point that might be useful. I've installed 
windows HVMs on Qubes 3.2 on both Lenovo T460 and x260 recently, and had no 
issues. The x250 should be similar. One variable I see is that you have a 
storage pool whereas mine both had a single drive. Don't know if that makes a 
difference.
