that also didn't work...

Anyway, as it turns out, I dont need to clone that Windows server anymore, so I don't need to figure this problem out.

Thanks for trying to help out, though!

   Hey James,

first of all, thanks for the really fast reply!

Regarding what you said, it was really too much for me hehe. I mean, I
admin a Xen server and regularly add/delete Linux guests, but it's my
first time with a Windows guest (and with USB) and, to be honest, I
didn't even know what qemu was until I wiki'ed it right now lol.

That being said, could you please explain what you mean by "pass
the block device"? You mean smth like /dev/sdg? That obviously can't
in the "usb_add" command, so where shall I use that? Sorry for the
Yes the block device like /dev/sdg. xm "block-attach" is what you want
to add the device dynamically, although without PV drivers installed in
DomU I don't think you can hot-add devices.
