Package: virtinst
Version: 0.400.3-4
Severity: minor

--- Please enter the report below this line. ---
I'm using some Windows XP KVM virtual machines installed with the "Microsoft 
Windows 2003" variant (with ACPI and APIC enabled) and it works great for 
months ago. When I shut down the virtual machine from the libvirt the virtual 
machine correctly shuts down so ACPI is correctly supported. I don't know why 
ACPI and APIC were disabled for Windows XP but I think Windows XP and Windows 
Server 2003 both have the same support of ACPI and APIC so there is no reason 
to have specific options for Windows XP.
