Hi Ken,

thanks for the reply, I want to try that. How did you copy
the Windows from disk to file? Did you make a raw copy
using 'dd' or did you copy the files using 'cp' on the loop-mounted
file system?

I have an installed Windows 7 on one partition
and running Debain Squeeze on the other. Both are 64 bit.
I want to use Xen to run Windows as virtual guest from
a physical disk. Once I get this working the Window will
never be booted directly.

Did you install the Windows guest via Xen or did you install it baremetal?

I installed Windows guest via Xen.
