Thread-topic: [Xen-devel] xen tftpboot
Many thanks for all the help I have received. I managed to boot it with
Ian's instruction on using mboot.c32. 

mbootpack did not work for me as it complains not able to find multiboot
header. Seems to be a known issue. I will just move ahead from this

Thanks again,
