Hi All,

My dom0  REHL5 xen OS.

I installed RHEL4U4  on disk /dev/cciss/c0d1. I exported this to domU in config file as hda as below.

disk = [ 'phy:/dev/cciss/c0d1,hda,w' , 'phy:/dev/sdb2,hdb2,w' ]

hda is exported properly but my other partition /dev/sdb2 is not exported to Domu.

And if I change to disk with full disk then it works fine.

disk = [ 'phy:/dev/cciss/c0d1,hda,w' , 'phy:/dev/sdb,hdb,w' ]

So conclusion is that we can't export a partition in HVM case. Is it correct ?

If this then we cant install a OS on a partition and start a HVM domain.

My problem is that on my laptop i have a single hard disk, so i can't install a Guest OS on this, because this require a full disk to be exported to guest OS.

Any help..
