Kind of a similar upgrade path as 0.9.1: Reboot w/o /gplpv, run install.bat, 
get a BSOD when installing xennet:

*** STOP: 0x0000000A (0x00000016,0x0000001C,0x00000000,0x80502392)

(no driver mentioned)

and the rest of the install is uneventful after rebooting. Next time around, 
I'm going to alter the order of install in install.bat to see if I can get 
xennet to install last. (I guess just hiding xennet.inf the first time around 
will work.)

I can verify that chkdsk-on-boot failed w/ 0.9.1, and works w/ 0.9.2. However, 
once chkdsk finishes & reboots (or any time you reboot after booting 
w/ /gplpv) you get the annoying BSOD:
*** STOP: 0x0000009F (0x00000500,0x00000002,0x82588EB0,0x8258C218)

(no driver name mentioned)

(Annoying because you have to remember to kill qemu-dm before you 'xm 
destroy', or else you have to reboot dom0.)

Keyboard still isn't functional, and no keyboard device in Device Manager.
