Hi Folks,
I am trying to boot a VM which uses a separate hard disk as VM's disk. The disk has Windows 7 (or Vista) 64 bit on it. The OS was installed on the disk while running on native hardware. the disk is a SATA disk.

The VM doesn't boot. It blue screens in the very early stage of the boot.

I am using Xen 3.4.2-rc1-pre version

Could someone please tell me if it is a supported feature on Xen? If yes, how to get it to work.
