Hello folks,

i do not get access to a physical disk with xen. I would like to install
windows xp as hvm to the physical partition /dev/sdb1.

I partioned the disk with cfdisk. Filesystem type is Linux (83). In my
eyes the filesystem using hvm is insignificant(?).

I tried the following configurations; probably a lot more than this.
#disk = [ 'phy:hda1,hda1,r' ] (comment from xmexample.hvm form /ect/xen)

disk = [ 'phy:/dev/sdb1,sda,w' ]
disk = [ 'phy:/dev/sdb1,hda,w' ]
disk = [ 'phy:/dev/sdb1,ioemu:hda,w' ]
disk = [ 'phy:/dev/sdb1,ioemu:sda,w' ]

The installation of windows comes up but the windows kernel does not
found any hard disk. I tried debian lenny and have gotten the same
effect so that i suppose there is something wrong with my configuration,
yet i do not see the point.

I have compiled the newest xen-distribution from www.xen.org. 

Has anybody an idea?

Thanks a lot,
