Can't access .iso image

I installed virt manager.when I try to select iso image from hdd hard drive (NTFS) and begin installation process This happens.

Move the image to your home directory and use session mode:

virt-manager -c qemu:///session

Otherwise, move the image to /var/lib/libvirt/images and use system mode:

virt-manager -c qemu:///system

Each mode has own specifics and SELinux restrictions, which NTFS may not support.

There is no problem in ext4 or in home directory (BTRFS) . It happens only in NTFS as I experienced .

That’s because NTFS doesn’t support SELinux required by the hypervisor.

Ok , Thank you so much
