Domain locking does not work, and neither does and tapdisk2 - which is
useful if you want to run a Windows HVM from a VHD file...

There may be other things, as well!

But in your case, I'd start by running 

xm list

If you get this...

WARNING!  Can't find hypervisor information in sysfs!
Error: Unable to connect to xend: No such file or directory. Is xend

...then you have a problem with grub2, at the very least, which I solve

mv /etc/grub.d/20_linux_xen /etc/grub.d/07_linux_xen
