KVM guest using host kernel (not cool)


While trying to get a centos kvm guest to work with virtio drivers I noticed that by default Cloudmin uses the host kernel for the guest. Can I change this behaviour from somewhere? I'd like the guest to use it's own bootloader and kernel, it's just so much more like a real machine. I loved it when Cloudmin for Xen started using pygrub. :)



Are you sure? KVM doesn't support using the host kernel at all as far as I know .. instead, the kernel from within the VM is always booted.

Must be the nights shifts getting back at me. Sorry for this, I'll double check!
