Well, you can xen-unstable change set 9460 for the demo.
Here is the procedure to install windows:
(1) use /etc/xen/xmexample.hvm as script
(2) change option "disk" to the image file or physical device partition you
intend to install. For example, you want to install windows in /dev/sda6, then you can configure:
disk = [ 'phy:/dev/sda6,hda1,w' ]

(3) change option "cdrom" to your cdrom device or ISO image, for example,
you have a windows installation cdrom as /windows.iso, then you can configure:

(4)change option "boot" to CD-ROM, as the following,

(5) modify display to sdl


(6)after configuration, you can run
# xend start
# xm create -f /etc/xen/xmexampmle.hvm

Hope it works :-)

Subject: [Xen-devel] It is possible to install Windows XP with intel vt now ?

Hi everybody,

I seen many post on running Windows XP on the top of Xen with proper hardware (Intel Vt) ... I would like to know if at this time, i could do that with Xen 3.0.2-2 or Xen unstable ? If yes, could you tell me the procedure ...

In 2 week i will make a show with Intel to demonstrate this possibility ... If at this time we couldn't, i will change the contents of the show ;)
