Hi Thomas,
first of all I appreciate your suggestion. But I can't do this with the VMs running on Hyper-V.
I need shutdown all VMs on the Hyper-V and them move them to the Xen Hypervisor.
The idea is copy the vhd or convert it with something... mount this disk?? to a lvm in dom0 and boot the VMs...
Any ideas???

Or other procedures, ideas, suggestions are welcome.

This will work for you....

Shutdown ALL Services in the VMs on the HyperV-Box, like mysql and
whatever because of "opened Files" which could cause a FS-Error....

All Steps below are done on the dom0....

Create a LVol on the XEN-Box

 lvcreate -L 15G -n VM1-Disk $VG

Create a FS

 # mkfs.ext3 /dev/$VG/VM1-Disk

Mount the LVol in Dom0

 # mount /dev/$VG/VM1-Disk /mnt

Copy the entire /-FS from your Hyper-V-VM to the dom0

On the Dom0:

 # rsync -avzH --numeric-ids -e ssh root@OLD-IP:/* /mnt/

Create a xen-config for your new Host and boot it up....
