I usually make a template config and a template tar-file of domU. So
my "install" is actually a "restore", plus minor changes :)

This PV config uses pygrub bootloader and allows memory and cpu
dynamic allocation up to 8 vcpu and 8G memory. The vfb part is
optional  (and I usually comment it out)


This HVM config is for running Win2003 on 64bit Linux dom0


Also works for Windows 2008 x84 if you set apic and pae=1, and memory >= 1000

That should do it. Just make sure that you have consistent backup of
the guest. e.g. shutdown domU first, or have LVM snapshot or similar.
