I finally have a xen server to play with stuff that's causing me
problems on my production servers. One of those problems is simply
installing Windows 2003. Here's what I do:

Open virt-manager
set up a new install:
        full virt
        512 ram
        20 gig sparse file
You haven't said what your Dom0 is, what OS and what version of Xen. Please state this.

By the way, don't use sparse files if you don't have to.

        boot off /dev/cdrom

The install starts as you'd expect. When it gets to the formatting I
tell it to format in NTFS. When the format finishes, instead of
continuing with the install, it reboots the domu. I believe at this
point windows normally copies files for installation. When it tries to
boot it gives an error "NTLDR is missing".

Has anyone seen this before?
Now that I have this system in front of me I can try whatever I want. My
production servers are remote so it's harder to work with them. Help is
