I've installed a HVM-guest on xen 4.0.1 with following disk-config:

disk = ['phy:/dev/vg_virtual/test,sda,w','file:/root/foo.iso,hda:cdrom,r' ]

"/dev/vg_virtual/test" is a logical volum (LVM2), the iso is an image-file.

The installation of the Linux-system (booting from cd, setup,...) was finished sucessful and the maschine will be restarted.

The rebooted system doesn't boot from the virtual harddisk and is booting from "cd" again.

After disabling cd-booting via boot="c" and restart the maschine says:

Booting from Harddisk...
Boot from Harddisk failed: could not read the boot disk

No bootable device found.

I've tried different distributions, also installing in an image-file with the same result.

There are data on the disk. I cann see the partitions and can mount it (extract via kapartx).

Booting the vm from cd is working. The rescue-system can mount the partitionsand I cann work with it.
Booting from "harddisk" will be failed.

What is wrong? Who can help?
