  I will probably get it up to 6.5 over the weekend, it’s pretty much because the host has established production VM’s running on the server, and I have to take a bunch of stuff offline to update.   Yes, I know that needs to get done during some weekend maintenance time..

Why 6.4 when 6.5 is out?


Also, you haven't mentioned what type of storage you are using, have you tried both IDE and virtio?

 I was trying to load a FreeBSD 10 VM on my CentOS 6.4 machine, and it keeps
hanging and not completing the boot.   I have FBSD 9.x VM's running just
fine, but if I try and load 10.x it's a no go.

Attaching to the console using VNC, I see:

gPXE (http://etherboot.org) - 00:04.0 C980 PCI2.10 PnP BBS PMM7FC0 at 20 C980

Booting from DVD/CD...
CD Loader 1.2

Building the boot loader arguments
Looking up the /BOOT/LOADER... Found
Relocating the loader and the BTX

That is it, at that point it just hangs.   I have tried from 2G RAM to 6G
RAM for the VM, and from 1 to 4 CPU's, but no effect.  The FreeBSD lists
said I should load a newer QEMU-KVM, that there are much newer releases but
everything I have seen claims that is not a good idea, that RH does version
numbering much differently.

Has anyone run into this, or have any ideas on how to get past it, as I
would love to load up the newest FBSD and give it a run as well..
