Re: [MirageOS-devel] Should the xen build of Solo5/MirageOS boot on EC2?

Just to clarify, Solo5 is only used for the virtio and ukvm backends, the Xen backend is not related to Solo5.

If you want to run on EC2, I believe others have run MirageOS with the Xen backend on EC2 but note it runs on Xen in paravirtualized, not HVM mode.

That's correct, Xen HVM uses the Xen split device driver model, not virtio, so Solo5 does not contain drivers for them.
