Try a different distro.  I found that booting Ubuntu in SuSE 10.2
produced an unreadable display, however it looked fine booting from a
FC6 system.

While I have some of the major distributions at hand here and will try
it later, a lot of people won't want to change their main distribution
because of this.

So, maybe it can be solved another way, therefore some questions:
- Did you use the same domU config files on both?
- which Xen packages and versions did you use (as well on the failing
system as on the successful system).
- was the display "unreadable" or actually just blank? (my symptoms
were that it was just blank)

I can't  tell anymore, on which distributions I had the problems, I am
playing around with quite some of them, but i will see what fedora
