Actually, this sounds like an intermediate error I had. After you install 
0.9.0, you have to make sure none of the old 
\windows\system32\drivers\xen*.sys files are still there - anything with a 
date older than 5/18/08. Since you can't boot the domu, you will have to 
losetup/kpartx/mount -t ntfs-3g to remove anything besides xenhide, xenpci, 
xennet or xenvbd.
