Hi all,

I've been trying to install Windows Server 2008 R2 under Xen 3.1 on Red Hat, but it keeps blue screening after the first reboot during the install. It seems to only affect 2008 R2. Windows Server 2008 installs fine, rebooting a couple of times along the way.

With R2, it will go through the initial unpack and install, and then it reboots. I'm installing it with virt-manager and I can watch it try to restart the guest, but unsuccessfully. xend-debug reports this (a lot):

Exception in thread Thread-50540:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/threading.py", line 442, in __bootstrap

    config = vbd.configuration(disk)

    result = DevController.configuration(self, devid)
File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/xen/xend/server/ DevController.py", line 251, in configuration
    raise VmError("Device %s not connected" % devid)
VmError: Device 768 not connected

I'm wondering if anyone has had similar issues... I'd probably be okay with going with just 2008, but there was a big security patch release with R2 and I'd prefer to use it.

Many thanks in advance,
