Yup, I have read that document. Unfortunately, at item 6 on page 26 it says “VNC and perform the OS installation” which is where I got stuck.

Great, I will try that.

Nope but I will try them today.

That is a great suggestion and is probably the source of the problem. Unfortunately don’t know how to do that. I have verified that the dom0 VM server is on the right network but how can I check the domU VM while it is booting?

It does. Thank you again for taking the time.

Please help if you can. I am stuck. I am trying to do a network based install of a CentOS 5.5 (64 bit) image using XCP 1.0 and got this error:
I have verified that the network images can be accessed on other hosts. Then I tried doing the same install with XCP 0.5 and got the same error which means that I am probably missing some simple, fundamental step. Maybe I am using the wrong UUID in one of the steps.

One other thing to check is that your VM is connected to the right network.
