Re: [Xen-users] Re: Drivers for Win2k3 domU

Thanks, it worked. I was actually misled with the URL below and thought I need to turn acp/apic off and replace the HAL, but I actually did not. virt-manager created the VM with acpi/apic/pae=1 and it just worked ;)

Thanks again.

How did you do it? I've tried following this URL:


but so far no go, nothing on the console and VM reboots after 10

My basics steps are:
1) Import registy entries as in this doc: 

2) vmware-vdiskmanager -r windows2003.vmdk -t 0 windows2003-flattened.vmdk

3) qemu-img convert windows-2003-flattened.vmdk windows2003.img

4) 2 and 3 I used a windows machine so then I ftp the img file to my xen server.

5) mount the img file and copy in hal.dll. Once in a while I can't modify the 
img file so I have to redo 3 and 4

6) then I use virt-manager to create a new domU and specify the img file for the hard disk.
I've done three that have worked fine. Another one refuses to boot. It
tries, but the processor utilization for that domU goes to 100% and it
never loads. Really don't know why and I'm stuck on that one. Once I'm happy with it, I dd it to an lv.
