What are you using for the "install"?  Sounds like maybe you're using virt-manager or virt-install, in which case you probably want to post to the lists for one of those products instead of the generic Xen list.  You'll also need to dig a little deeper into the log files to see what it's looking for that it can't find for an installable distribution.

I install centOS 5.1 with xen and now I am trying paravirtualize the same centOS 5.1.

So, I put the install cd in cd-drive and then in a terminal I did:


mount –rbind /media/CentOS_5.1/ /media/disk/


and it works.


then I configured one server of NFS. In a terminal I did:


mount –t nfs root/Desktop/example/


and it works.



Then when I was creating the virtual machine, at part “Locating installation media” in the field “install Media URL” I put




and when is starting create the virtual machine gave this error: Could not find an installable distribuition the install location.


What I am doing wrong??

Can you help me??
