Installing Centos on top of Centos with virt-install/virt-manager
should work, but if you use other templates you might need to adapt
some settings. In your case probably "xencons=console" is ignored by
domU kernel. Since your boot log says "Xen virtual console
successfully installed as xvc0", try setting up xvc0. See
