Hello everyone,

    I am beginner. I have intalled the Xen Desktop 3.1 in Kubuntu 7.10, running 
in a laptop Dell 640m with a T7200 processor. I just had to enable the Intel VT 
in the BIOS, and I could boot with the Xen kernel without problems (I believe). 

    Now, I want to know if it is possible to start the pre-installed OS, a 
Windows Vista Home Basic OEM, as a guest OS. It is already installed in the 
first partition of the disk (/dev/sda1). I found a sample config file in the 
xen_install_windows.pdf guide I downloaded from the Xen wiki, but it is related 
to Win2k3.

My biggest doubt is if I can tell to Xen that it has to use the primary 
partition of the disk (/dev/sda1) to run the Windows Vista that is already 
installed on it. I thought to replace the line "disk" of the config file with 
something like this:  disk = [ 'phy:/dev/sda1,sda1,w' ]. But... Will it work?

I will appreciate any help. Thanks in advance,
