Hello everyone:

I have looked everywhere and have not come up with an answer to this question so I am hoping someone here may know. I have been creating images using virt-manager in Scientific Linux 5. The xen configure file that is created by virt-manager uses the pygrub bootloader. The problem with this is I would like to boot the images without using pygrub and use a kernel and initrd from outside the image. I have tried using a few different partition schemes in the image, trying many variations in the /etc/fstab in the image along with variations in the xen configure file and none have been successful.

As I said these are images that will boot with pygrub but I don't want to use it here. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

You need to have the kernel inside the image, at least for loadable modules that aren't in the initrd. You can keep the primary kernel and initrd on the Dom0: take a look at the setups at www.jailtime.org for setups.
