Hey guys,

I read xen-create-image to see why it seemed to work if I used that. Just by an aside I noticed that there is an option of use-ide

So, I've set "use-ide = 1" in /etc/xen-tools/xen-tools.conf and recreated my images and it seems to work now.

I figure that an IDE server has problems trying to run a SCSI domU

I'm creating a bunch of domUs now and rebooting to see if they all start ok. (I also had to up my loopback devices as indicated in another post)

Give it a shot and report back.

Just to confirm, changing use-ide = 1 and changing my /etc/init.d/ xend to read:

        modprobe loop max_loop=64
        cd /dev && /dev/MAKEDEV loop
        xend start

fixed my problems. I now have three domU's working happily.

Good luck.
