hi all,

I have a question: Is it possible to kexec into a xen vmm from a non-xen
kernel? In my vision it would be interesting to boot from a generic
linux installer, then analyze the hardware and boot into a suitable xen
kernel, that loads a dom0 linux kernel.

Do you know anybody interested in this?

thanks in advance
