What block/disk-backend do you want to use?

i have no problems with blktap2 (meaning vhd image) and lvm. Google
says, your error has todo with your "hard drive".

Which version of pfsense do you want to try?

You will need hvm virtualization for pfsense.



Hi There,

Did you have to compile Xen with any special options to get pfSense
working on an Intel processor?

Or maybe you're using AMD chips?

it works on both. standard ebuild, nothing special. currently on xen-3.4.2-r1 (amd chipset) and xen-4.0.0 (intel chipset).

although, your xen-tools need to have hvm support to work with that.

Still waiting for your config-sniplets, Jonathan.
