It seems that I'm almost there.  My VM fails to boot from CD.  My disk options are

disk = [ 'phy:/dev/Xen/WinXP,ioemu:hda,w', 'file:/xens/test/winxp.iso,ioemu:hdc:cdrom,r' ]

and my boot options are:


Any thoughts?

first create the lv.

# lvcreate -L <image size>G -n <image name> <vg name>
# lvcreate -L 80G -n mywindows-disk Xen

using this scheme, the disk entry in your hvm config file would
read something like:

disk = [ 'phy:/dev/Xen/mywindows-disk,ioemu:hda,w' ]

btw. i would always add a mac address to the vif line. there's no
assigned 'free' address space to use, just use one which isn't
already in use at your network segment. e.g. :

vif = [ 'type=ioemu,mac=02:16:3e:48:04:38,bridge=xenbr0' ]
