Installing Fedora aarch64 with QEMU and libvirt

These steps will work on both x86 and aarch64 hardware. If running on actual aarch64 hardware, the virt-install commands should automatically request KVM for maximum performance.

Get the necessary bits

Importing F21 aarch64 disk image

 sudo ./virt-install \
   --name f21-aarch64-import --ram 2048 --arch aarch64 \
   --boot loader_ro=yes,loader_type=pflash,loader=/usr/share/edk2.git/aarch64/QEMU_EFI-pflash.raw,nvram_template=/usr/share/edk2.git/aarch64/vars-template-pflash.raw \
   --os-variant fedora21 --import \
   --disk /var/lib/libvirt/images/F21-20141017-foundation-v8.img
  • The guest should start booting. Log in with user=root, password=fedora
  • Note: Networking doesn't work automatically for this image, you'll need to change the config inside the VM to use DHCP

Installing F21 aarch64 from URL

This currently doesn't work
There's a backtrace from python-blivet when transitioning to anaconda. See bug 1166876
 sudo ./virt-install \
   --name f21-aarch64-urlinst --ram 2048 --arch aarch64 \
   --boot loader_ro=yes,loader_type=pflash,loader=/usr/share/edk2.git/aarch64/QEMU_EFI-pflash.raw,nvram_template=/usr/share/edk2.git/aarch64/vars-template-pflash.raw \

Installing F21 aarch64 from CDROM

Warning.png
This currently doesn't work
The CDROM doesn't automatically boot. The reason is that the installer media was built with a too old version of lorax which didn't create an aarch64 ElTorito EFI boot image.
 sudo ./virt-install \
   --name f21-aarch64-cdrom --ram 2048 --arch aarch64 \
   --boot loader_ro=yes,loader_type=pflash,loader=/usr/share/edk2.git/aarch64/QEMU_EFI-pflash.raw,nvram_template=/usr/share/edk2.git/aarch64/vars-template-pflash.raw \
   --disk size=8 --os-variant fedora21 \
   --cdrom /var/lib/libvirt/images/Fedora-Server-DVD-aarch64-21_Beta.iso
