    I hope I'm not asking a FAQ, but I've searched google and this list and haven't manage to find an answer to this on my own.

    I'm running Centos 5.4 64-bit on Intel Core-2 Duo CPUs.  I'm trying to install Solaris 10 10/09 as an HVM guest on this system.  I have the Solaris 10 10/09 x86 ISO image that I am booting from; I can see the GRUB menu, but when it tries to boot to the OS, I stop getting any console output.  I've tried the standard [vnc] console, and I've tried using the xen serial 0 console and telling Solaris to boot using ttya or ttyb; nothing seems to work.

    The Xen version I'm running is:

xen.x86_64                                 3.0.3-105.el5_5.5           installed

    The HVM configuration is:

name = "test1"
uuid = "01c2dc0e-dd8c-6ef2-d116-4e02f2a534d9"
maxmem = 1500
memory = 512
vcpus = 1
builder = "hvm"
kernel = "/usr/lib/xen/boot/hvmloader"
boot = "d"
pae = 1
acpi = 1
apic = 1
localtime = 1

device_model = "/usr/lib64/xen/bin/qemu-dm"
usb = 1
usbdevice = "tablet"
sdl = 0
vnc = 1
vncunused = 1
keymap = "en-us"
disk = [ "file:/export/test1.img,hda,w", "file:/root/sol-10-u8-ga-x86-dvd.iso,hdc:cdrom,r" ]
vif = [ "mac=00:16:36:4d:3e:2d,bridge=virbr0,script=vif-bridge,vifname=vif20.0" ]
parallel = "none"
serial = "pty"

    Any help, tips, or even being beaten over the head with "you're stupid, just do this" messages would be appreciated :)

Thanks in advance!
