You haven't given much information, but it sounds like mkinitrd didn't
grab all the necessary modules.  Add '-v' when you run mkinitrd, and
see if there are any critical modules missing.  If so, run mkinird
with the "--with=[module]" option for each module missing.

How do you know what's missing?
* Compare boot without xen to boot with xen, looking for "Loading
[name].ko module".  This is hard to do w/o a serial console.
* lsmod, and find which modules are necessary for your SCSI.
* Look at your non-xen initrd to see what modules it contains.
