           Summary: Error when creating a WinXp VM on working Etch xen 3.0
           Product: Xen
           Version: 3.0.3
          Platform: x86-64
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HVM
        AssignedTo: xen-bugs@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
        ReportedBy: kormannm@xxxxxxxxxx
                CC: kormannm@xxxxxxxxxx

-HP ML110 G4 XEON 3040 box, 1536 Mo RAM, 160 Go one Sata disk, VT enabled.

-Already working Debian ETCH system with lvm.

following modules installed:

then added at the end of /etc/modules the row:
"loop max_loop=64"
and reboot

In /etc/xen/xend-config.sxp, uncommented the (network-script network-bridge)
line and restarted the xend daemon. 
find 3 new cards peth0, vif0.0 thru vif0.3 and xenbr0.

In /etc/xen-tools/xen-tools.conf:
uncommented "dir = /home/xen" line
modified kernel and initrd lines in:
# Default kernel and ramdisk to use for the virtual servers
#kernel = /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.16-2-xen-686
#initrd = /boot/initrd.img-2.6.16-2-xen-686
kernel = /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-4-xen-vserver-686
initrd = /boot/initrd.img-2.6.18-4-xen-vserver-686

Creating a Etch VM
mkdir /home/xen
xen-create-image --debootstrap --hostname Etch --ip=
--gateway= --dist=etch
xm create /etc/xen/Etch.cfg

At this point all work fine, I can see the Etch vm with "xm list", "xm console
Etch" work a bit slow, xenman's console on Etch VM work fine and ssh Etch work

But when I try install a WinXP VM I got a problem.
I copy a WinXp ISO on /home/iso/WinXP.iso

Here is my config "/etc/xen/WinXP.cfg"

kernel = '/usr/lib/xen/boot/hvmloader'
builder = 'hvm'
memory = '256'

# Disks
disk = [ 'file:/home/xen/domains/WinXP/disk.img,ioemu:sda,w',
'file:/home/iso/WinXP.iso,ioemu:sdc:cdrom,r' ]

# Hostname
name = 'WinXP'

# Networking
vif = ['type=ioemu, bridge=xenbr0']

# Behaviour

When I release the command ""xm create WinXP.cfg" I get the following error

# xm create WinXP.cfg
Using config file "/etc/xen/WinXP.cfg".
VNC= 1
Unexpected error: exceptions.OSError

Please report to xen-devel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
