Thread-topic: [Xen-users] Problems upgrading to Xen 3.1
I've tried capturing the screen output now and in fact I don't see any error 
messages. The boot process simply stops before loading Dom0 initrd and kernel. 
I've used the kernel+initrd successfully with Xen 3.0.4 before, so why does 
upgrading to Xen 3.1 stop the machine from booting up at all? Is there anything 
else I could try out?


PS: Attached a screenshot of where Xen hangs, sorry I can't provide it as text 
right now...
