How can you say the guest is badly setup ? I used virt-manager to install a fresh centos5 pv domain using file based image, gave it the installation CD to use. It installed perfectly fine and was working also fine. Unless virt-manager itself creates a badly behaved guest ?

And then once i remove centos5 xen packages, virt-manager, compile xen 3.1.1, the image stopped booting. Once i add those lines, it starts to work again.
