RE: [Xen-devel] Re: [Xen-ia64-devel] VTI Windows installation andbooting HowTo

Hi Alex,
    Using Flash.fd.2006.12.01 and Cset#12796 (with the accel_ide_pio
patch from FJ), I have done the VTI_Win2k3server installation within an
hour. ( Please make sure that serial='pty' has been commented in your
VTI config file.)
    I did not meet the problem you said.
