Thanks for replay,

1) CentOS release 5.2 (Final)
2) version 3.0.2 installed by yum
3)Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 (Nahant Update 7)
4) I tried with all proposed kerlens kernels  2.6.9-78,  2.6.9-78,  2.6.9-55 but they all generate the following error :

Waiting for driver initialization.

PS. How Is it possible to boot with a minimal kernel


2008/11/25 Nick Couchman
A few questions:
1) What update of CentOS5 are you using on the host?
2) Are you using the Xen version that came with CentOS5, or have you manually installed another version?
3) What update of RHEL4 are you running as the guest?
4) The kernel version referenced in the error message indicates that you have a pretty old kernel - 2.6.9-42, while the more recent RHEL releases are on 2.6.9-78 (the latest) or 2.6.9-67.  You may want to try booting a minimal system in your domU and updating the kernel to a later version and see if that helps.

Hi all,
