I was doing a :    # virt-install --connect qemu:///system -n vm10 -r 
512 --vcpus=2 -f /vm/vm10.qcow2 -s 12 -c /dev/cdrom --vnc 
--noautoconsole --os-type windows --os-variant winxp64 --accelerate 
--network=bridge:br0 --hvm

when I got the error.

Booting from CDROM...
Boot Failed: Could not read from CDROM (code 0003)
No bootable device.


I guess I'm going to have to make a bootable CD with the Windows files 
on it.

How does one do that ??
