Thread-topic: [Xen-users] Getting Windows 2003 to run in multiple cores ???
My configuration file has explicit acpi=1 & apic=1.
But during installation I remember following a step which suggested
setting these values to 0. Maybe that is the root-cause of the issue
that am seeing now.

Will try to look for the info to switch to a different HAL.
In the meantime it would be great if you can point me to any
documentation to do the same .
