I'm trying to figure out how to create KVM VM. I'm doing this via virt-manager GUI on Ubuntu 12.10 host. What I did was that I downloaded the image we are using in Rackspace cloud ( ie. the tar.gz file) to the KVM host, then I tried to build the VM locally however as soon as the terminal window starts it looks like the image can't boot saying "no boot disk found". Strange thing is that it is first trying to PXE boot and then fails. Any ideas would be hugely appreciated.
Same thing happens if I try to use any of Ubuntu images. ie any of these http://uec-images.ubuntu.com/precise/20120808/
However when I follow the guide on this link: http://www.howtoforge.com/virtualization-with-kvm-on-ubuntu-12.04-lts All works fine - obviously not something I'm looking for as I'd like to find out how to boot Rackspace cloud images.
