[Xen-users] Errors when creating HVM guests

Hey guys,
I've been trying to import a VMWare image into Xen, so I converted the .vmdk into an .img with qemu-img
I then tried to import it into Xen with the following command:
root@GLaDOS:/home/jacob/Stackato-v1.0.4.vmwarevm# virt-install -n Stackato -r 2048 --os-type=linux --disk=/var/lib/libvirt/images/Stackato-v1.0.4-disk1.img -v --import

Starting install...
ERROR    failed Xen syscall Failed to create inactive domain Stackato
Domain installation does not appear to have been
 successful.  If it was, you can restart your domain
 by running 'virsh start Stackato'; otherwise, please
 restart your installation.

    if ret is None:raise libvirtError('virDomainDefineXML() failed', conn=self)
libvirtError: failed Xen syscall Failed to create inactive domain Stackato

To me, this doesn't seem like a very helpful message, so I tried, what I assumed would use paravirtualization, removing the -v flag. The VM then installed and booted, however obviously HVM virtualisation would be much more desirable.
anybody got any ideas on how to get this working?
