Can't boot DietPi in KVM-QEMU virtual machine

Post by dsal2018 » Sat Aug 24, 2019 4:58 am

Hello,

I have a multicore AMD machine that runs ubuntu. I have virt-manager installed and I can successfully make VMs with any OS, including windows.

I tried the X86 bios and EFI versions of Diet-Pi and neither will boot with virt-manager. The errror is that the disk is not bootable for either one.

How do you use DietPi on x86 VMs?

Ok,

Figured it out.

You openup virt-manager, you make a new VM and select Import Existing Image.

Works Ok.
