I am sucesfully running 2.6.30 xenified kernel:

DELL Optiplex 960
CPU intel E8400

Debian lenny 5.0 x64

Xen 3.4.1 rc11
kernel xenified

thanks to howto from bderzhavets:


So far running ok.

1) I am not able to resolve issue while booting xenified kernel. There
is like 30s pause.

Simple Boot Flag at 0x7a set to 0x1
cpu0(2) debug files 120
cpu1(2) debug files 120
platform microcode: firmware: requesting intel-ucode/06-17-0a

****** Here comes 30s pause********

Microcode Update Driver: v2.00-xen <tigran@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>, Peter Oruba

Anybody knows what is the cause?

2) its not possible to build latest available + xen patches

Trying to build it ends with:

  LD      init/built-in.o
  LD      .tmp_vmlinux1
arch/x86/pci/built-in.o: In function `pcibios_resource_survey':
(.init.text+0x340): undefined reference to `ioapic_insert_resources'
make: *** [.tmp_vmlinux1] Error 1

3) minor problem you can face is that intel nic is not working with
kernel driver

 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82567LM-3 Gigabit Network
Connection (rev 02)

You have do download e1000e- driver - unpack and run
"make install" and than "modprobe e1000e" to have it running

Thank you bderzhavets once again for great xen howtos
