RE: [Xen-users] Easiest OS to use for xen 4.0?

Thatâs a good question. I had understood that Xen 4.0 was needed to run windows 
7, but now I canât find any evidence supporting that claim. I will try either 
CentOS or XCP then.

Hello everyone,

I realize this question may be frequently asked. Iâd like to assure you that I 
did as much research as I could myself before resorting to mailing this list â.

I need to run Xen with a DomU guest OS being windows 7. My understanding is 
that I need Xen 4.0 in order to do this. I have a system to build exclusively 
for this purpose. My question for everyone is, what is the *easiest* choice of 
host OS for running Xen4.0. Here is what I have tried/researched.

Why would you need Xen 4.0 to virtualize Windows 7? I don't run Windows 7 but I 
don't see a technical reason why you'd need a specific version of Xen.

Some people, when confronted with a problem, think "I know, I'll use Windows." 
Now they have two problems.
