virt-manager is usually used to interface with QEMU. Please see https://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/1727

Hi Rene,
I was looking at the later version of virt-manager, I don't know how to run the downloaded file? The newest is 2.2.1

You'll probably have to compile it yourself. The version that comes with Mint works great; don't really see any advantage with the newer virt-manager, especially when the QEMU version is 2 full revisions behind.

Good point. I will stick with the version supplied by MInt.

also check out gnome-boxes as possible alternate.

Thanks, I stuck to the Mint version and Virtual Machine Manager and have Windows 7 up and running, I want to try Windows 10, on previous tries, it seemed to be forever to have 10 install. Is that just windows 10 I wonder.

And thanks for the tip on Gnome Boxes, a neat way to try different OS's :)

I was one of the beta testers for win10, but after that "build" went RTM, I was through with it. So, it wasn't too difficult to set up in virtual manager, although of course microsoft wanted a bare metal install for testing. I have no idea how well w10 fits into a virtual system with the latest 1903 or whatever it is now.

Using the latest Win 10 doesn't seem to be flattering at all. Even Win 7 on my machine is slow...

Out of curiosity, do you want/need Win10 for anything in particular?

Hi pbear,
I am starting to question that, I did have a small partition with it, lost it, went working virtual , thought it would be interesting to have it available virtually. And for what? Perhaps time to put this idea to bed, what should be interesting is becoming not so with some of the problems I have encountered.

PS: I tried and liked Boxes, except I get an error now..... :x
