What does 'xm dmesg' say? There was a bug in 3.2.? that caused a crash
due to incorrect emulation of certain instructions across a page
boundary (or something like that). I was mostly able to get through an
install of Windows 2008, but it would crash very soon after login.

If you can use dpkg-buildpackage I can dig up the fix for you. I might
even have the hypervisor image around that you could just drop in. Let
me know if you want to try it.
