Subject: [Xen-users] cd-rom
access, hvm boot, unstable download from 9-7-2006
I grabbed the unstable download from 9-7-2006.
When I go to create a hvm VM, I get a CDROM boot
failure code: 0002 in xm dmesg.
In my configuration file, I have tried the following:
Both without success.
Should I use a syntax like pointing the hard disk to
cdrom = [
(this does not work either)
When I issue the xm create winxp.hvm command I get
the SDL window and see a quick screen with a “Q to quit” prompt
(too quick to read it all) then see the bios screen pop up, get a could not
read from boot device error in that screen and it dies.
If anymore information is required please let me
The platform is an AM2 4600+ chip riding on an MSI
K9N SLI Platinum with a gig of Corsair Dual channel DDR2 with a WD SATA 160 gig
drive. Running CentOS 4.3 64bit.
Also is it best practice to give guest OS’s
individual partitions or use image files for their operating system? I could
see portability being a huge plus with image files but maybe better performance
from partitions. Has anyone had a chance to play with this using fiber channel
SANs? Is it worth the effort?
