Re: [Xen-users] Problem for migrate Debian (Vmware) to XEN

Ola Bruno,

The problem is that xen qemu (the part that is responsible for emulating the
virtual hardware devices like disks an network interfaces) is rather old.
It will emulate hard disks as IDE devices instead of SCSI devices. Thus
the device nodes that used to be e.g. /dev/sda1 are now /dev/hda1

You will need to edit the kernel command line in your /etc/xen/foo.cfg file
to have "root=/dev/hda1". After booting the VM you will need to edit 
your /etc/fstab and replace "sd" with "hd" for the rest of the devices and
reboot your VM once more.
