I'm trying to install a virtual machine; OS = kubuntu 14.04LTS using virtual machine manager on an external hard disk. My PC's OS is 12.04LTS(kubuntu) Precise Pangolin. Everything goes ahead (relatively) smoothly on VMM till its time to actually install the OS and create a domain. I then get the error message below:
"Unable to complete install: 'Unable to read from monitor: Connection reset by peer'
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/asyncjob.py", line 45, in cb_wrapper
callback(asyncjob, *args, **kwargs)`
File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/create.py", line 1909, in do_install

dom = self.conn.createLinux(start_xml or final_xml, 0)

if ret is None:raise libvirtError('virDomainCreateLinux() failed', conn=self)
libvirtError: Unable to read from monitor: Connection reset by peer"
Has anyone experienced such an error and how did you resolve it?
All help and assistance is deeply appreciated.
