That's just what XCP calls them. I wish I had a better answer than that.

Your VM is paravirtualised, meaning that it expects the guest OS to know
what to do as a guest. Those live CDs probably aren't set up to be Xen
guests, so they fail (I'm guessing).

What you could do is just add a new VDI to your system, and mount it in
the guest. Or you could start over with a bigger disk. You don't have to
use the default.
