Continuing the discussion from [WIP] Windows/QWT user reports:
This is my first post on the forum, so please bear with my newbie question.
With the new Qubes 4.1 now I am struggling in making Xen block device work. So my configuration in brief:
- Qubes OS 4.1
- Windows 7 HVM
- QWT 4.1.67
I have seen all sort of claims like “worked like a charm”, “only crash after first boot”, “you have to update Windows first”, etc. but it my case, it always ended up crashing the VM with BSOD.
The crash never happens right away. For me, the very first attaching of a hard disk partition to Windows 7 HVM always success, but after detaching and re-attaching, it always crashes. Or after reboot (implicit detaching) and attaching, it always
crashes too, no matter what I did.
Can somebody with the expertise confirm black-on-white A or B below, please? I think it would help clarify the situation and save newbie like me a lot of trouble.
A. This Xen PV disk driver will not work in Qubes OS 4.1 + Windows 7 + QWT 4.1.67 configuration, or
B. It works in Qubes OS 4.1 + Windows 7 + QWT 4.1.67 configuration and here is how I did it.
