Hi! I want to run a Xen Dom0 (and DomUs) inside VMware Workstation. I
used Debian for this and had the Xen-related packages installed with
it. When I booted the VM using the Xen kernel, I get the following
message from VMware Workstation:

 A virtual CPU has entered the shutdown state. This would have caused a
 physical machine to restart. This can be caused by an incorrect
 configuration of the virtual machine, a bug in the operating system or
 a problem in the VMware Workstation software. Press OK to restart the
 virtual machine or Cancel to power off the virtual machine.

1- What could be causing this?
2- Are there things that I need to tweak to make things work?
3- I currently have limited access to extra physical machines that's
  why I'm using a solution like VMware Workstation
4- The VM boots well using the vanilla kernel and other kernels (e.g.,
5- Does this have anything to do with Xen's compatibility with VMware
