With HVM, the console is treated differently from PVM. Where for PVM,
Xen simply provides a 'serial alike' console to the domU that you
can connect to from the outside with 'xm console', for HVM Xen actually
simulates a physical console (keyboard, videocard/framebuffer). To
access this simulated console, you need to configure and use VNC.
The "xm console" command for HVM a domU connects to what is usually
presented to the domU as a simulated serial console. If you run Linux
inside the HVM domU, simply attach a getty (via inittab) to /dev/ttyS0
and run it at 9600. For Windows, you can also set up a kind of serial
