Hi all,

Just a quick follow-up to say that this problem seems to stop after you manually mount the disk image in dom0, try to create one of the domUs, unmount the disk image after it fails to mount, destroy the dead domU, then start it again. I can now start all of my original domUs normally. Still having problems booting into the 5th but this is because I've removed the max_loops parameter.

Obviously I'd like to find out what the problem is with mounting the disks as loopbacks -- does anyone have any ideas, or suggestions for finding out?
