From time to time, after applying Windows updates on my Windows 7 kvm-based virtual machine, the machine won’t boot after restarting. In the past, I was lucky to be able to fix it.

Last night, I could not say the same thing. Instead of stressing out losing my hair on how to get it working again, it’s decided to just restore the whole Windows image. First, I need to get some updated data from it though.

In this post, I’ll share a short instruction on how to mount qcow2 disk image to a directory on Fedora 21 so I can get some data out.
