Re: [Xen-users] Does a PAE domU work with non-PAE dom0?

On 32-bit Xen all the PV guests have to match Xen.  So if Xen is PAE then dom0 
and all domUs must be PAE.  If Xen is non-PAE then dom0 and all domUs must be 
non-PAE.  You can't mix PAE and non-PAE.

On 64-bit Xen, PV guests (including dom0) can be 64-bit or 32-bit PAE.  32-bit 
non-PAE PV guests won't run.

HVM guests can have any memory mode "equal or less than" the Xen memory mode.  
e.g. 32-bit non-PAE only on 32-bit non-PAE Xen.  32-bit PAE or non-PAE on PAE 
Xen.  32-bit non-PAE, 32-bit PAE, 64-bit on 64-bit Xen.

Hope that helps,

Dave: Skateboards have wheels.
Mark: My wheel has a wheel!
