I want to understand if it is possible to install Windows from Qemu to a physical HDD. I was trying to do that by doing something like this:
qemu-system-x64 -m1024 -vnc :1 -hda /dev/sda -cdrom .../Windows.iso
Installed successfully. But when i tried to boot normally got a blue screen telling me that a hardware change appeared so go away.
I guess the problem is not because of QEMU-CPU emulation or smth, but because of HDD`s UID change which is used inside of Windows registry. Am i right?
So if yes how to workaround this? Maybe i need to prepare Windows before the reboot? I have successfully installed FreeBSD via QEMU and thought with Windows it will go the same ...
