Thread-topic: [Xen-users] installing Windows 2008 R2
Thanks, James...  I'd rather not have to go down the road of running a new 
version of Xen than the one that comes with the system, and Red Hat 5.4 is due 
out soon which uses the KVM hypervisor instead of Xen.  Although you'll be able 
to run your Xen guests on it with a few minor modifications.  I'm not sure what 
those are yet...

Use a later version of xen.

2008 R2 is actually the server version of Windows 7. It's not just a
patch it's a different product, and they are maintained independently.
