Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 + KVM + Windows XP virtio block device: “Windows could not start because of computer disk hardware configuration problem.”

With this issue Windows 7 is not affected.
I installed Windows XP with virtio block device fine. After rebooting the OS cannot be started from the disk with this message:

Windows could not start because of computer disk hardware
configuration problem.
Could not read from the selected boot disk. Check boot path
and disk hardware.
Please check the Windows documentation about hardware disk
configuration and your hardware reference manuals for
additional information.

Solution: upgrade seabios package to 0.6.2-0ubuntu2 or above.
