Hi all,

Running fedora14 with xen-4.1.1 and linux-3.0.0-rc3.

I'm trying to install XP into a domU and have tried all the recipes I could find on google and haven't had any success so far. Available resources are the install CD, copy of the CD as an iso, and a loopback mounted copy of the iso as /dev/loop0.

kernel = "/usr/lib/xen/boot/hvmloader"
memory = 256
name = "vm8" ### xp pro sp2 ###
vif = [ 'mac=00:16:3e:08:22:01, bridge=DMZ' ]
disk = [ 'phy:/dev/OneTB/vm8,xvda1,w' ,
         'phy:/dev/loop0, hda:cdrom, r' ] <-------------------
vfb = [ 'vnc=1' ]

I alway error with:

libxl: error: libxl.c:946:libxl_device_disk_add Invalid or unsupported virtual disk identifier hda
cannot add disk 1 to domain: -6
libxl: error: libxl_dm.c:747:libxl__destroy_device_model Couldn't find device model's pid: No such file or directory libxl: error: libxl.c:738:libxl_domain_destroy libxl__destroy_device_model failed for 24

Any helpers out there?
