I've tried various permutations on xvda, hda, hdc, xvdc, and so on, xvda was 
just the last one I used.

Also, I started out with an LVM partition attached to it, like so:


And in paring down I removed it in hopes that there was a problem with disk 
handling.   I've even removed the cdrom file just to see if it would boot and 
then look confused, to no avail.   finnix is a livecd ISO, which is why I'm 
using that-- virtual disk isn't needed to test things out.

I've also played with various apic, acpi, and pae toggles.
