KVM: unknown exit, hardware reason 0x80000021 kvm_run returned -22 solution

If the below is happening on KVM (a very weird and scary looking error) it's probably because of Windows. This has happened countless times to me where the bootsector on Windows 7/2008 becomes corrupted easily (even by a crash or shutdown).

The solution:

Boot from the install disk and click "Repair" and then command prompt and use the "bootrec /fixboot" command it should fix it.

#fixmbr did not fix it
bootrec /fixmbr

#fixboot fixed it!
bootrec /fixboot
