NOTES:

Changed:
<
<
  • When creating a KVM guest you must always use the --accelerate option. If you do not, it will fall back to QEMU emulation.
>
>
  • The --accelerate option used in previous versions of this document is now depreciated in new versions of virt-install.
 
  • the --cdrom option can point to an actual drive (ie, /dev/hdc), or a iso file on your local machine.
  • use --location for a remote file (ftp, http, etc.).
  • ram is specified in MB, disk size is specified in GB.
