Re: [Xen-users] Migration from a regular system to Xen

Ok I knew that dd was able to make copies of disks bit per bit but not that it could make images for Xen.

What do you think a raw image is? Magic?

By setup a kernel what do you mean ? I would like to avoid having to mess with the original system. Could I just do this with full virtualization ? I was planning to get a system with Intel VT anyways.

No need for VT, it is a mess anyway. Just set it up with a linux kernel (outside the image) inside Xen, and try if it works. If you get a big #$(*& warning about TLS, disable it. And read the XenFAQ!

If anyone has a tutorial or a page that explains a few things as to how this would happen, I would still be interested.

Use google.
