Thread-topic: [Xen-users] No Diskdrive in HVM-guest

I assume you are using latest Xen unstable source. Could you please try with 
following disk config:
disk = [ 'phy:/dev/lvm/dom1,hda,w', 'phy:/dev/cdrom,hdc:cdrom,r' ]

HVM doesn't support SATA or SCSI disk, so "sda" is not correct. 

Best Regards,
