Here's my winxp pro config. I believe the vncconsole parameter is what
automatically brings up a vnc window on domain creation. You may have to use
acpi = 0 during the install phase. As I remember a previous thread,
the 'asms' bug is related to that. When the install window comes up and
says 'Starting Windows', press F5 (I think) and select 'Standard PC', which
does the same thing (acpi=0). The localtime parameter hasn't done anything
for me - set it to 1 or 0 and you still get UTC time - no biggie. The
usbdevice="tablet" gets around the annoying mouse lack of synchronization
problems. On the 'disk' param, the docs say 'tap:aio:' is preferable
to 'file:', which uses loop devices and is slower, but 'tap:aio:' produced an
image that was unrecognizable by qemu-dm. 'tap:' worked for me.
Maybe 'tap:aio:' only works for PV domains. Look
at /root/.virt-manager/virt-manager.log for the uuid that virt-manger used.
