Hi Just,

You need to change the CDROM part of the disk = to look like


That should solve your problem, but make sure you remove the
'phy:/dev.....' line as well as it will conflict.

Subject: [Xen-users] WinXP CD-ROM problems

I'm running Xen on RHEL5.

I've got two problems with CD-ROMs.

In my .hvm file, I've got the following line:

disk = [ 'phy:/dev/VG_Guests/WinXP-001,ioemu:hda,w',
'phy:/dev/scd0,hdd:cdrom,r' ]

The first CD-ROM,  (the one linking to the file winxp.iso), appears to
WinXP to be corrupted.  I'm able to mount that iso in the main OS so
I'm thinking this is just some weird Xen/WinXP problem.  I'm not sure
when this started as it is the WinXP Install disk and I don't normally
need it.  It worked originally when I set this up.

The next and more pressing problem is that when I pop a CD into the
CD-ROM drive, WinXP 99 times out of 100 doesn't realize a new disk has
been inserted and doesn't update the listing.  This has made
installing new software impossible.

Can someone please help?

Thanks in advance.
