Thread-topic: [Xen-devel] No VT-d with Xen 3.3/3.4rc3 on Intel-Board DQ45CB
So I haven't tried the AMT SOL stuff before but you may be able to setup the 
AMT commander/director tools (AMT Developer Toolkit) to get the SOL output. You 
will probably have to do some AMT provisioning to be able to connect the tools. 
Then you can setup the xen command line to do serial tracing - try it first 
with COM4. Also can you send a more verbose lspci trace (lspci -vv e.g.)?

I sent the requested files to Ross, now we're working on getting the  
Serial-over-LAN (SOL) to work so I can capture the boot messages.

The board has two COM ports. One does not have a standard connector.  
It's only a couple of pins directly on the board, so we can't use this  
without getting a connector for it. I turned that one off in the BIOS.  
lspci still shows the "serial KT controller", so this must be the COM- 
Port created by AMT/SOL. The board's manual states, that the SOL-Port  
is Com4 by the way.

As the data is sent via Ethernet, the USB-to-Serial-Converter and the  
Nullmodem-Cable probably won't be useful. I downloaded the AMT-SDK  
from intel.com and successfully connected to the AMT-Stack on the Xen- 
PC. I can start a SOL-Console - now what? :-)
