That's caused by a mismatch between the kernel you're booting and the
modules contained within the initramfs. Is the debian supplied domU
config doing the downloading or have you tweaked it to supply your own

If all else fails, download the initrd/kernel from a mirror yourself
and make a much simpler one-use install configuration.

I'm fairly certain the above is your problem, but for future
reference: virtio_blk is for kvm; the xen disk driver is usually
called xen-blkfront.
