I know others are running Windows Server 2008 in a domU. I'm trying to
setup my first one. I've tried booting the domU off the actual disc
(adding the cdrom as a device in the domU) and using an iso. 

Either way I get the same error:
"A valid boot sector was not found. The installation may have failed."

I'm running sles10sp2. xen version: 3.2.0_16718_18-0.3. 

I'm using virt-manager to start the install. 

Any suggestions?
