As usual, use PV if you can as it provides best performance :)

Worth to try :
- map additional disk to domU as xvdf (for example)
- load xen-vbd, see if it detects the disk

If that works, try putting using ide0=noprobe and put the module on
initrd. If it doesn't, there's probably something wrong with the
kernel version you're using, try downgrade, or (even better) use
RedHat support and ask them what's wrong :D
