Let's try something simpler. You specify

vfb          = [ 'type=vnc, vncdisplay=106, vnclisten=' ]

It creates a vnc display for domU's GUI.
By "hang", do you mean the output of "xm create -c" didn't continue,
or are you looking at the GUI? Cause by default the graphics console
will be used as default output, so you must use VNC to access it.

You could always remove the vfb line, and have xen text console  (the
one you access with "-c") becomes the default.

If it still doesn't work, try older kernel/initrd version (5.0, or 5.2
perhaps) for installation. I had a problem earlier installing 5.5 on
newer kernel/xen version, and when I use 5.0 kernel and initrd for
install it just works. Didn't have the time to investigate yet, so I'm
not really sure what went wrong then.
