I've been using Xen 3.0.4 successfully on a debian dom0 with a p4 3.2 ghz
processor, but with a non VT chipset.

I've just recently purchase a Core 2 Duo, and thought about migrating my
guests to be vmx guests. I followed the guide at
http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/VmxQuickstartGuide, but having troubles
starting the guest.

If I do "xm create -f <whatever>.cfg -c", I see a pygrub menu, but it
bombs out when trying to load the kernel.

I see the following in /var/log/xen/domain-builder-ng.log:

xc_dom_release: called
xc_dom_allocate: cmdline="root=/dev/hda1 ro quiet splash", features=""
xc_dom_kernel_file: filename="/var/run/xend/boot/boot_kernel.25ua2U"
xc_dom_malloc_filemap    : 1723 kB
xc_dom_ramdisk_file: filename="/var/run/xend/boot/boot_ramdisk.2aUKzk"
xc_dom_malloc_filemap    : 6646 kB
xc_dom_boot_xen_init: ver 3.1, caps xen-3.0-x86_32p hvm-3.0-x86_32
xc_dom_parse_image: called
xc_dom_find_loader: trying ELF-generic loader ... failed
xc_dom_find_loader: trying multiboot-binary loader ... failed
xc_dom_core.c:495: panic: xc_dom_find_loader: no loader found

Anyone have any suggestions at all? I essentially just created a new image
file, used fdisk to create the partition, and installed grub into the mbr,
then copied the contents of the OS from the old disk image using "cp -a".
