Re: [Xen-devel] Error booting Xen

Hi guys,

I tried the patch and I am very happy to inform you
all that the patch has solved my problem. Now I am
able to boot Xen without disabling XSAVE. I have
full log of boot at http://paste2.org/gVW0Z9nm (if
any one is interested. also "XXX Hello, this is my
first mod :)" is printed by my mod, so ignore that

Thank you guys for your help.
