All sorts of problems in QEMU on windows. If I boot normal (not
legacy) with only a CDROM drive, i get a bunch of errors like this
(have to type them by hand):
ata2.00: exception Emax 0x0 SAct 0x0 SErr 0x0 action 0x2 frozen
ata2.00: cmd a0/00:00:00:00:... tag 0 cdb 0x12 date 36 in
res 40/0000:... Emaxk 0x4 (timeout)
ata2: soft resetting port
ata2.00: configured for MWDMA1
ata2: EH complete

All sorts of weird stuff. ide-legacy just hung at the udev stage.

Any ideas?

And on another note, testing in one emulator only is not a very
extensive procedure. Simo and I noticed differences even between qemu
and qemu-kvm behavior (so we should at the least be testing both of
these), not to mention booting on real hardware.

I'll try to burn this sometime and boot it up on a real machine, we
definitely need testing like that.
