at least I solved this problem with my great windows admin at my side *grin*

These were the steps to get the windows machine paravirtualized:

- Boot system with /NOGPLPV
- Reset IDE-registry-entries with MergeIde (see: 
- Reboot system again with /NOGPLPV
- After this the windows dialog "new hardware found" appeared
- So for every XEN-Device we reinstalled the gpl-pv-driver (used the dialog: don't 
search for new drivers ->  use already installed driver)
- In the device-manager look for exclamation-marks and reinstall driver if 
- reboot system without /NOGPL
- possibly reconfigure network (you have a new device now!)
- have fun with the paravirtualized Windows 2003 system

Hm, sounds really familar, pointing to the Problems I have had with win XP Pro SP3 on top of an xvm 3.4 (build from gate), it also faced me with a bsod on boot after installing the corresponding msi package.

But currently I have no time to verify this, sorry.

32Bit System, it shows the already known 0x7b blue screen.

I've tried and tested some tips mentioned here on the list like:
* apci=1
* vcpu=1
* checked that IRQS above 15 are possible (Yes they are)
* removed the type=ioemu from the vif-line
* rebooted with /NOGPLPV and booted again without /NOGPLPV

Possibly someone can get me more hints to get this system up and running ;-)

The XEN-system below is a debian lenny with 64Bit hypervisor and 32Bit Dom0 

The Windows-DomU configfile:
kernel       = '/usr/lib/xen-3.2-1/boot/hvmloader'
device_model = '/usr/lib/xen-3.2-1/bin/qemu-dm'
builder      = 'hvm'
name         = 'weyoun'
memory       = '1024'
disk         = [
vif          = ['mac=36:27:0a:0f:ff:02, bridge=xenbr6']

boot         = 'c'
vnc          = 1
vncviewer    = 0
sdl          = 0
# vnclisten    = ''
usbdevice    = 'tablet'
acpi           = 1
apic           = 1
vcpu           = 1

/dev/xbd/weyoun.xxx are "logical volumes" (via iscsi or directly connected)
