There is no 32 bit 2008 r2, there is only 64 bit and I've had no
problem installing the rtm build on xen, I've also installed windows 7
and that works fine too.

On both I have videoram set to 8mb to enable high resolution, and
viridian enabed to stop bugcheck code 101 when using multiple cpus.

I don't use any special settings for the cdrom, just
file:/mnt/nas1/2008r3.iso, hdc:cdrom,r

I am running xen 3.4.1
