This almost always means that you are not running a getty on the console.
The box is booting fine, it just isn't running a getty on the console
you are looking at, so it looks like 

The same problem on a CentOS5.1 DomU  is fixed by adding the following line to

2:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty xvc0

look through your /etc/inittabl and find the getty line, and make sure 
one is running on tty1

Though the console on my debian DomUs all look like they are tty1 so

1:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty1  

is the important getty line for my debian DomUs.  

So yeah... poke around and try to figure out what device it thinks is console
and then run a proper getty on that device.  

(Note, if you want to login as root on that device, also add the devicename
to /etc/securettys)
