You can use the Xen Live CD to create and install you Windows XP at your office, after that, just copy the files from your disc to the disc of your Xen server...   :)


At the Desktop of the Xen Live CD, there is a README file to help you with the creation of the Windows domU.

 I have a Xen box that currently runs Linux PV instances, and for various reasons I need
to add a WinXP instance for my own use with a couple of large apps on it. The box is in a
colo environment where it's not very convenient to sit and do installs, so I'd like to
prepare an instance at my office, using a non-Xen environment, get everything installed,
then move the instance over to my Xen server on an external hard drive.

 I don't have a Xen box at my office, so I'm wondering which environment is best for
preparing and building a WinXP HVM image/instance?
