Now, let's take look at inside of the system emulated hardware. What it displayed on system properties window? For somehow, QEMU interpretive that the system is currently running on Intel Pentium II processor with 39.05Ghz of speed. What a confused display. This is the reason why that the installation process was established (a very) slowly. I couldn’t figured out why it happened.
Anyway, the dual virtual processor logic was displayed correctly. Also the system RAM 256MB was dedicated as so as well.
From Device Manager window, some hardware was detected improperly. The real Mobile Intel 945GM/GU Express chipset family detected as Cirrus Logic 5446 compatible graphic adapter. While the Matshita DVD-RAM UJ-850S are known as QEMU CD-ROM. The laptop are not equipped with floppy drive, but it was emulated not in that way. Broadcom NetLink Gigabit Ethernet detected as Realtek RTL8029(AS) based Ethernet Adapter (Generic).
After using Windows XP emulated over QEMU for some couple hours I found that the system was running somehow not too stable than it emulated over VirtualBox. For several times it displayed the blue screen errors containing of different unknown problems & sometimes, the system got locked up. The built-in touchpad also act weird. I could not tested further by implementing networking device or installing applications since it has not enough space & the systems runs too slow. This last part articles finished, I suggested to considering using VirtualBox than using QEMU built-in from Fedora Core 7. Hope that soon QEMU will developed more reliable than other VM to support the future of virtual machine.
