The only thing that looks suspicious is the 'bridge=xenbr108' option. (You 
also don't need the trailing ',' in 'disk=' either.) One of the things that 
changed in 3.2 is the default bridge is eth0, same as the non-xen net 
interface. Check 'brctl show' to make sure that your bridge is actually being 
created, and which bridge shown has peth0 (the xen physical interface) in it.

Something else you could try is create a test Windows domain, and compare the 
config created to the one you have.
