I am assuming that since root is a command line option for a kernel invocation, that the path it refers to is from the perspective of inside the kernel which means the disk translation is in place.


Are you using the initrd image for the kernel so udev can load correctly?

Thats what I had to do to get past this point, admittedly I'm fairly new to Xen, but this issue seemed to be that the device node or driver didn't exist, and since udev handles the files in /dev, even under the xenoserver, then you would have to load the initrd image as well.
