I looked but didn’t see any mention of this but I am assuming the Incus can create and run a Windows 11 VM like LXD did.
If Incus does support this do I assume I follow the same Win11 VM creation steps with Incus as I used with LXD except of course substituting “Incus” for “lxc” in all the commands?
Something has changed with LXD or Qemu or the Ubuntu Kernel as recently as two weeks I had multiple LXD Windows 11 VMs running great.
Then this week, none of those same Windows 11 VMs can fully boot.
They start to boot then after ~25-30 seconds the VGA Console disappears and the LXD Windows VM goes into the STOPPED State.
Ubuntu VMs work as expected and continue to run.
I’ve tried every possible way to get any of my previously working Win11 VMs to fully boot/install.
I even freshly installed ubuntu 22.04.3 and LXD 5.19 on a separate machine.
Tried to create a new Windows 11 LXD VM using
I followed these ihttps://ubuntu.com/tutorials/how-to-install-a-windows-11-vm-using-lxd#3-create-a-new-vmnstructions as I’ve done many times before.
Starting the new Win11 VM
$ lxc start win11 --console=vga
The initial Windows Install “window” pops up.
I click “Next” to continue.
A spinning ball appears on the screen.
TOP shows qemu-system using 100% cpu!
After about 25 seconds the Win11 Installation window disappears
and qemu-system is gone from the TOP display.
$ lxc ls shows the win11 VM in a STOP state no longer running.
I figured I would see if I can successfully create and run a Win11 VM using Incus.
