Re: Re[Xen-devel] lease 0.9.9 of GPL PV Drivers for Windows

Hi, James, Thank you for your great work!

But I have problem using 0.9.9 driver:
My dom0 system is openSuse10.3 x86_64 with xen 3.1
after  windowsXP sp2 installation I use the 0.9.9 installer to install pv
drivers, no errors.
But when i boot windowsXP with /gplpv, the system hangs at "Windows
Xp"splash screen with the indicator rolling...I keep the windows running for
about 1 hours and the indicator is still rolling..
If I boot windows without /gplpv, everything is ok.
I reinstall a windows 2003 server and the problem is the same.
It seems that he situation is like

What can I do to use 0.9.x the driver? As far as I know the 0.8.x driver
works for my system.
