[Xen-users] Re: Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit HVM on xen-unstable 23842

Why ubuntu as hvm domu and not pv?
I have installed Natty as pv, with official netinstall take here:
Have 2 problem on install solved:
On network interfaces detection failed select "go back" select execute
shell, insert this command:
modprobe xen-netfront
select "Detect network hardware"
continue with normal install and at bootloader problem select to continue
without bootloader.
At install complete mount domu disk with -o loop on dom0 and create file for
pygrub, for example:
mkdir /mnt/tmp/boot/grub
vi /mnt/tmp/boot/grub/menu.lst #check always kernel version
default         0
timeout         2

title           Natty 64 bit (Ubuntu 11.04)
root            (hd0,0)
kernel          /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.38-11-generic root=/dev/xvda1 ro 
initrd          /boot/initrd.img-2.6.38-11-generic

title           Natty 64 bit (Ubuntu 11.04) (Single-User)
root            (hd0,0)
kernel          /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.38-11-generic root=/dev/xvda1 ro single
initrd          /boot/initrd.img-2.6.38-11-generic
Start the first time and solve the other problem, for example:
xm create NATTY.cfg
xm console NATTY.cfg
modprobe xen-blkfront
# login and add xen modules
# Add in /etc/initramfs-tools/modules and /etc/modules:
xen_netfront #Xen virtual network device frontend
xen_blkfront #Xen virtual block device frontend
xen_fbfront #Xen virtual framebuffer device frontend
xen_kbdfront #Xen virtual keyboard/pointer device frontend
sudo update-initramfs -u
sudo reboot

You can also install grub2 without problem on domu active now:
sudo rm /boot/grub/menu.lst
sudo aptitude install grub
sudo update-grub

I have all working except 2 problem:

- Xen vnc pointer doesn't work after restore

- Cdrom in cfg file, see example below:

is seen as internal disk and only administrator can mount it
