Re: [Xen-users] Starting basic HVM -- where am I going wrong?

As long as it is readable.

Here is a copy of a working HVM (Windows 7) that I use.

Note: I first created the disk file (/var/lib/xen/images/win7/disk0.img) with all zeros, so it will appear as an unformatted hard drive to the guest OS. The first time, I ran with boot="d" to boot off the CDROM to load. After the OS was loaded, I xm delete win7, changed boot="c", xm new win7 and then started the vm with xm start win7.

In a follow up, I tried it with a burned CD, and it touched the drive briefly before dying again, so it seems to get pretty far in talking to the drives.
