   I've tried this many times, and I always seem to get stuck here.  I
do step #4 above, exit from EFI shell, and get a quick text flash that
looks like it's selecting and booting Windows 2003, then my VNC session
goes blank.  It runs for a little over an hour consuming 100% of a vcpu,
then according to the xend.log the domain reboots.  I've using the 12.01
GFW with xen-ia64-unstable.hg tip (12796).  It repeats the same thing
again if I re-attempt from step 4.  Thanks,
