Ticket #9563 (new defect)
Installation of Windows 2000 Professional guest results in spontaneous reboots.

Host OS: Slackware Linux 64-bit Host CPU: quad core I7-2600 @3.4GHz Guest: Windows 2000 professional, with default guest settings for win2k
I'm sure I've installed Windows 2000 without issue in the past. The guest reboots occur somewhere around the hardware detection phase,the exact point at which it happens seems to vary. I've just got myself a somewhat more powerful host, so a change in timing could also be the issue. The system runs very fast at any rate so I wonder if this could be triggering the win2k installer bug (see qemu -win2k-hack option).
