I am running linux mint debian edition.
I have kvm installed and working, using virt-manager as the manager. I have a qcow2 disk file with windows xp pro installed that I used as a base to clone a new qcow2 file. I have done this before without a problem. For testing I want to run multiple clones. However, if I boot up more than one clone at a time I get the following error in Windows:
Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: <Windows root>\system32\hal.dll. Please re-install a copy of the above file.
This seems to happen with any combination of cloned qcow2 image based vm's that I run. I can run any of them separately. But, if I try to boot a second one when there's also one running off of the same base image, I get that error.
Should I be able to run multiple clones like I want for testing? If so, please point me in the right direction to accomplish that.
