I have tried a yum upgrade of a Fedora 8 DomU to Fedora 10. The host (Dom0) is Fedora 8.

I can run the DomU if I boot the 2.6.21 F8 kernel left after the upgrade but not any of the 2.6.27 F10 kernels.

Any help would be appreciated. I intend to move my Xen hosts to CentOS5.2 running Xen 3.3 but can not get that working yet either so am seeing what can be done with F8 in the meantime.

If I try the std F10 kernel, I get the message
Error: (2, 'Invalid kernel', 'elf_xen_note_check: ERROR: Will only load images built for the generic loader or Linux images')

If I try the PAE F10 kernel, it panics and dies.
