Hi, I need to run a vhd file specifically, (no converting,) in Qemu Manager 5.0. The reason is that I need to boot an x64 vhd I plan on using PWBoot on, (as in order to use PWBoot it looks like it has to be virtualized, emulated, whatever, first,) in Qemu 0.9.0 specifically. The thing is non-CPU emulators, (also known as the de facto virtualization programs,) such as VirtualBox, VMWare, VPC, ect. require hardware virtualization to boot a 64-bit VM, which my 64-bit comp apparently does not support. Luckily, according to this Boot-Land thread, ( http://www.boot-land.net/forums/index.p ... topic=9424 ,) specific versions of CPU emulators, (a.k.a. emulators that the de facto programs use internally but take away the not-needing hardware virtualization for an x64 boot,) can boot an x64 vm without hardware virtualization. The one that works best for this matter is 0.9.0, (which is kinda funny as 0.9.1 apparently creates BSODs for this manner,) of which the latest version, [of this great GUI for using & taking advantage of QEMU known as QEMU Manager,] that supports QEMU 0.9.0 is QEMU Manager 5.0. Unfortuantely, it only supports VMDK & some obscure formats like qcow2... BTW, where it says to download QEMU Manager 5.0 from on the official QEMU Manager site seems to be down, but you can download it from here: http://www.download3k.com/DownloadLink1 ... nager.html - Download says it's downloading from official site, BTW. Details on QEMU Manager here: http://www.davereyn.co.uk/qemu_manager.html

Suggestions? Please help me! Please? :?

Thanks,
M260

BTW, I'm not so sure that vhd's run in Bochs 2.4.2 or QEMU 0.11.5, (the other 2 viable but not as good emulators for this prospect according to the Boot-Land thread,) & I would prefer to use QEMU Manager over just QEMU, & QEMU Manager doesn't even support 0.11.5...so, yeah, I'd prefer if ya'll just seeing if QEMU Manager 5.0 would work...

Thank you,
M260
