Thread-topic: Windows debugging under Linux with Xen
I've just put together a very simple Linux app that can connect to a
windows machine over the virtual serial port and get the
DbgPrint/KdPrint messages, which are really handy for finding out what
is going on with the GPLPV drivers.

I've only tested it under Windows 2003 x32. If the debugging protocol is
different under newer or older versions of Windows (and it could well
be) then it probably won't work there.


Start your windows DomU in debug mode (F8 at the boot menu and select
debug) and then follow the instructions in the readme. Lots of debug
info should get printed. Must easier (and faster) than using the proper
Windows Debugger, and can capture the boot logs which DebugView can't if
the system won't boot.
