RE: [Xen-users] 64-bit Windows Installation Problem


        Thank You very much.

        After the installation of xen 3.0.4-1 it works correctly :-)


                Cheers, Archie

It may be worth trying either Xen-unstable or 3.0.4-1 - there are
several fixes in the code dealing with 64-bit issues on both Intel and
AMD. It may of course STILL be broken, but it's definitely possible that
it's been fixes added that solves the problem. [I haven't tried any of
the above on AMD or Intel machines - so I can't say].
