I recently started having this issue after enabling nat networking for my domU.

The domU is booting the kernel with an initrd i generated and was using before just fine. Output is as follows. Any help would be appreciated. Here is the output I get:

    0.161289] xvde1: detected capacity change from 0 to 10486808576
[    0.260033] XENBUS: Device with no driver: device/console/0
[    0.260065] drivers/rtc/hctosys.c: unable to open rtc device (rtc0)

Begin: Mounting root file system ... Begin: Running /scripts/local-top ... done.
Begin: Waiting for root file system ... done.
(drops to Busybox from here)

Here is my config:

kernel = "/boot/vmlinuz-"
ramdisk = "/boot/initrd.img-"
memory = 512
vcpus = 1
name = "ubuntu910_3"
disk = ['file:/media/vm/appliances/ubuntu910_3/ubuntu.9-10.x86-64.img,sda1,w']
root = "/dev/xvda1 ro"
extra = "xencons=tty"
