Pasi, my grub.conf is attached.

Ok, fix it to be like this:

module /vmlinuz-
root=/dev/mapper/vg--grp--01--23--02--2-LogVol00 dummy=dummy ro
earlyprintk=xen console=hvc0 console=ttyS0 console=ttyUSB0,115200n8

aka remove "quiet" and add "earlyprintk=xen console=hvc0"

Pasi, this gave some more output.  Sorry the video is fuzzy but this
happens by youtube postprocessing.  Here is new link:

If you have somewhere I can ftp original video file, it is clearer.
File is about 90 MB.


Original video is posted here:

It's very difficult to see the problem from that video :(
We'd really need a serial console log.

Also you I wonder why the screen goes blank in the end?
Before that it seems to mount the root (?) filesystem OK..

Do you have some console font/videomode thingie configured?
See the "Dom0 console gets all weird and corrupted in the end of the boot 
process" from:

Also please add "nomodeset" option to the end of the pvops kernel boot options,
like suggested on pvops examples/docs.

-- Pasi

Ok, I finally got a little more output using nomodeset. There is a soft lockup bug. Attaching screenshots.
