Folks --

I'm trying to run FreeBSD 6.0 on a VT-x based Xen system. I'm experiencing a problem where the boot loader is crashing before the FreeBSD kernel (proper) is loaded.

I don't think I can help you much as far as fixing, but earlier I opened a bug report in Bugzilla regarding this issue at http://bugzilla.xensource.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=622 I will try to help any way I can but I have next to no experience with assembly. Time to learn, perhaps.

Good luck for now and ask if you would like some help (with something I can actually help with...),

Hey there is a patch that was mailed to -devel by Kevin Tronkowski today called "[Xen-devel] [PATCH] Extensions to vmxassist to handle additional mode switch cases". It sounds promising.

Wow, I really should catch up on all posts here before replying. Yeah... you already posted something. Ignore me for now, heh.
