Hi everyone,


1.      I try to boot a raw image with hda under Xen hypervisor converted by VMWARE vmdk image with scsi, but fail to boot with error message “Error loading operating system” below”.

Who can give me a favor?


2.      Under vSphere,  create a windows XP VM with scsi storage then install a windows XP to the SCSI storage called xp.vmdk in the VM via iso file. Can successfully boot the VM under VMWARE hypervisor. Shutdown the VM.

3.      Use tool qemu-img to convert the vmware VM image xp.vmdk to raw image called xp.raw

4.      Create a XEN VM with hda to xp.raw. During booting the XEN VM, will appear the error message “Error loading operating system” below.



5.      I modify ide.c and rombios.c in xen hypervisor per the following link then rebuild hypervisor then replace “qemu-img and hvmload” with the built ones, but still fail to successfully boot with the same error message.



Note: My Xen platform is the CentOS5.5 64bit bundled with Xen 3.1.2.

Linux 2.6.18-194.8.1.el5xen #1 SMP Thu Feb 10 11:27:38 CST 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
