Hi Leena,

are you absolutely sure that xen-3.3.2-rc5.gz, vmlinuz- and initrd.img- are actually in your /boot directory?
Error 15 indicates that at least one of those is missing, maybe you forgot to copy the initrd file from the directory where you created it ?

Hi All,
       I am not able to boot Xen .

My "/boot/grub/menu.lst"  has this entry

title           Xen 3.3.2-rc5 / Debian GNU/Linux, kernel
root            (hd0,0)
kernel          /boot/xen-3.3.2-rc5.gz
module          /boot/vmlinuz- root=/dev/sda1
module          /boot/initrd.img-

I am getting the error during booting ( snapshot attached )
The Xen config file is also attached.

Please Help me.


PS : I followed the following procedure from the
"Introduction to the Open Source Xen Hypervisor"
Zach Shepherd and Wenjin
taken from xen blog.

Install required packages
(e.g. apt-get install gawk libssl-dev libx11-dev gettext libncurses-dev
build-essential python-dev texlive-latex-base transfig tetex-extra
bcc bin86 pciutils-dev git-core curl texinfo libc6-dev mercurial
bridge-utils graphviz)
Download the latest Xen release
(e.g. hg clone http://xenbits.xen.org/xen-3.3-testing.hg)
Compile and Install
(e.g. make world; make install)
Create a ramdisk
(e.g depmod;mkinitramfs -o /boot/initrd.img- )
Configure the bootloader
(e.g update-grub)
