Below is my output

I can not therefore get the VBD parameters . for the above commands return nothing

# fdisk -l

How do configure my storage to create a vm -disk, virtual disk image and a virtual block device. Because I would want to attach a boot disk to dom 0 and create a VBD which may be of help to me during booting.
