I'm partial to examples on stuff like this, so as I work through this I intend to add some; for example, under the creation of the image: You can name the image whatever you would like, and likely set the size in GB, so the command to create an image named "arch-standard" with a size of 10G would be: qemu-img create -f qcow2 arch-standard.qcow2 10G This will create an image in your current directory; this image file will not be 10G, but something substantially smaller.

Removed note about arch installation and virtio vda disks

The link about the virtio vda devices seems to be out-of-date information. This issue has since been patched. I have a brand new arch guest installation (2013.06.01 media) with a virtio disk, and it works beautifully. I removed the note. Jslick (talk) 17:06, 6 July 2013 (UTC)
