I haven't tried...yet but I need this guest to perform as best as it
can so I want to use paravirtualisation if possible.

I think the error from pygrub might be due to the fact that the guest
OS has a single root partition (noswap) and the default is to format
in ext4. From I have read pygrub doesn't read ext4 partitions yet. I
am stepping through the installation again and will modify the
partition layout.

Will report back.
