Hello, I am trying to boot Xen on one of my new servers and get the
following upon kernel boot ...

(XEN) PCI ...

It checks all of the IRQS, the ide bridge... etc

Then it says...

(XEN) mtrr 2.0

Then hangs indefinitely

Is this a known issue on certain systems? It's all standard hardware
(Intel 865 chipset motherboard (intel brand board) Seagate hard drive,
normal ram..)
Any idea what I can change to get this to boot up?

It may be worth commenting out mtrr_init in arch/x86/mtrr/main.c and see if that solves the problem. It may be failing on the thing it does after mtrr initialisation, but this is worth checking.
