RE: [Xen-devel] XP: VBD could not connect to backend device:USB boot

Thanks guys.

But no luck. I did try removing both 'ioemu' and '

Error: Device (769) could not be connected. Backend devices not found.

Still is the problem.

I have attached Xen start-up log, xm file along with this email...

My kernel is 2.6.16-33, Xen-3.0.3/3.0.4.. If that helps..

Note, I am booting from a USB/LILO combo and not from the hard-disk...

I do have enough loop devices, compiled into the kernel..

Well, as Mats said, it would seem that some fundamental setup is
somewhere.  Gosh, that does sound a bit vague of me, sorry!

I take it you've checked the disk images (e.g. /root/xenimages/hd.img)
mounted at the correct positions.  You don't need the ioemu: syntax
so try removing that.

Finally, you could try removing the CDROM argument to simplify the
although this shouldn't make a difference! (I don't believe the problem
with the CD-ROM itself - the error suggests hda can't connect).

I'm sorry I don't have anything more specific to suggest right now - but
looks like it ought to be fixable, anyhow.  Hopefully we can figure it
