as sda is working for you, i would change xvda1 to e.g. sda3.
indeed, the suggested xvda should also work.

i've never tried to use the mapper, my working setup's are used via


e.g. phy:vg0/lvdisk1 ( phy:/dev/vg0/lvdisk1 should work also...)

additionally, be sure to NOT mount your particular lv in dom0
when using it in domU.

btw. maybe you're using the same setup? is you vg labeled 'data' ?

Hope this helps
