I have this exactly same problem. To be honest, I tried couple of times and then started to experiment with vastSky and have messed my servers many times doing  so, so I'm propably not the best person to comment on this matter. I would still like to know if it "should" work -> has someone used xenCenter 5.6 fp1 with xcp 1.0beta and managed to succesfully create VM's?

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.
