Qemu Manager - now a complete virtualization suite

Post by mikedep333 » Sat Mar 24, 2007 5:25 am

Good news. Kqemu is now under the GPL, qemu manager has come along nicely, and qemu has been great for a long time. This means that for windows users, there is now an easy to use virtualization suite, not just an emulation suite. Download and install the latest version of Qemu Manager (currently 4.0) which includes everything, choose to use kqemu (not qvm86) during setup, and you have a suite almost as powerful as vmware.

Does it work together with the current trunk of ReactOS?

if you're asking about kqemu - yes it works.

I just used it with build 26159, so yes, it does work with trunk (assuming trunk doesn't get broken again.)
Just keep in mind that this build makes you wait two minutes before starting a real ROS session.

That looks a lot better, no more having to create BAT files to play with long command lines. from the screen shots it looks good and I have read previously that it can be made almost as fast as VMware but it probably invades you system less than VMware. I might have to give it another go.

I tried to install ReactOS 0.3.1 on virtual disk in qemu, but while booting for the first time i receive error message "Partition signature != 55AA"

Is there any workaround?

I got the same partition error = 55AA using VM Server setting up an image using the 0.3.1 release .iso. The problem is when you go through the installer the first time that it fails to format the virtual partition correctly. When the virtual machine reboots, it attempts to boot from hard disk and detects the incorrect partition type. The fix is to change the virtual boot order and place cd to boot before hard disk. Then run the installer the second time and it will format the virtual partition correctly and copy the files to the install directory. You will then have a working image.

I can't get through the link, I guess it's down (or it just for me), any mirror please?

Thanks.
