Hi James

I've finally found some time to test these new drivers on my system -
64bit dom0 Ubuntu Hardy w/xen 3.2; domU Windows 2003 i386 (SBS).  I
couldn't boot Windows after installing the drivers, ether with or
without the /gplpv boot option.  Startup stalled on the first screen of
windows starting, the black screen with the moving progress bar before
it switches to graphics mode.  The progress bar stopped moving and it
never switched to graphics mode.  I let it run for about 3minutes before
"xm destroy"ing it.  Normal boot is about 1:45 to the Windows login

The drivers appeared to install OK in Windows - no errors or anything.
Let me know if you need more info and thanks for your continued efforts
on developing these drivers.

Can you send me your config?
