Thread-topic: [Xen-users] Installing x86_64 Windows 2003 server
You definitely will need PAE=1 in your configuration.
Whether it actually works in 3.0.2 or WITH that is a different matter - there may be other changes in the -unstable tree that are required [or it may not work at all! - But I seem to remember seeing some patches a while back indicating that x64 Windows was working with those changes...]
I would probably try a -unstable version - it's not terribly unstable at the moment, because the tree is frozen to form 3.0.3, so anything "revolutionary" is prevented from going into the tree...

My environment:
Hardware: Intel Conroe based, VT enabled
Xen: 3.0.2, SMP kernel
Base OS: RH 4 Update 3, x86_64, SMP kernel
Guest OS: Try to install x86_64 Windows 2003 using hvmloader booting from CD on to a disk image file.
Configuration file: pae=0, acpi=0 or 1, apic=0 or 1
Failure symptom: Windows installation CD will boot and files are loaded, but
For acpi=0 or 1, apic=0, the installation hung at "Setup is starting Windows", VM status is b.
For acpi=0 or 1, apic=1, the installation hung at "Setup is starting Windows", VM status is c

1. Does xen 3.0.2 support x86_64 for Windows?
2. If yes, what do I need to modify to make it work.

BTW: x86 seems worked just fine.
