RE: [Xen-users] GPLPV (9.11pre20) in Win2003x64onXenServerEnterprise 5.0

Hi James (and peter),

Here i am again, sorry for the delay but i had some problems  (and again...
lot's of feedback ;) )
As promised i tried to install a NEW VM from scratch (Windows Server 2003
X64 R2 Standard) and then install the GPLPV drivers.. i needed to know if it
had to do with booting with-or-without a CD loaded...

So i installed a new VM from scratch.. and there things went wrong...
In a new VM with NO XenPVTools, i get a BSOD when installing the GPLPV
I made a new topic for this problem:

After we solved that and we are able to install the GPLPV drivers in a
brand-new-clean VM, i will continue testing for this topic.
