I can’t even put into words how badly I wanted to figure out this new problem. I have been fighting with it for a few days now, and I haven’t made any progress.
So, I am hoping someone has seen this and knows what to do. Here’s what happened that got me to this point:
I installed my new 8TB hard drive. I had issues booting because this changed the mount points. So I edited my fstab so all the hard drives were mounted via UUID. I have two 1TB drives in addition to the new 8TB. The first 1TB originally held the VM images, and still does mainly as a backup. I copied all the VM images to the new 8TB drive using
rsync -avzhP Took forever, but eventually all the files were on the new drive.
After this, when I try to start my Win10 VM, this happens:
At first it didn’t even get to this screen. It would bootloop only getting to the spinning circle.
So I thought it was a permissions problem. rsync changed the permissions during the copy. virt-manager and qemu run as root, which I don’t like. So I changed all the file permissions to match the old files. No joy. I tried to use the original files. Also no joy.
So I am at the point where the only other thing that seems to have changed is the drive mount points. Would this make a difference? Does anyone have an idea of what’s going on here? Suggestions?
