I am using xcp 1 beta with xencentre fp1 and I'm having problems installing new vms.

This is the scenario

:: I can create a new vm sucessfully for Ubuntu Lucid 64 or CentOS 5.4
:: Either can be created from the local cdrom or a connected cifs sr
:: On first boot the install can't detect drivers for the local media, cdrom.
:: If I restart the vm from the failed install I can't start it again and get the following error for the CentOS vm

WARNING:/dev/xvda is not a disk image - traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/pygrub", line 746, in ? - raise RuntimeError, "Enable to find partition containing kernel" 

Previously I have been using xen 0.5 and xenserver 5.6 on the same hardware without these issues.

Any help would be appreciated.
