[Xen-users] HVM help please

Fresh install Squeeze with Backports - (Has happened on plain Squeeze
and Wheezy installs too) Everything worked fine with this install till
I installed xen-qemu-dm-4.0.  After I installed this, I started
getting 'elf_init : not and ELF binary' while it was trying to load
Domain 0.  And now I have removed xen-qemu-dm-4.0 and am still getting
the errors.  I can boot into non Xen kernel fine.  I actually have
experienced this with two MB's.  The first was a Asus KGPE-D16.  I
bought the Tyan cause I thought the Asus was just being flaky.

System Config
MB: Tyan S8230GM4NR-LE
CPU: 2x AMD Opteron 6174
Mem: 64 GB DDR3 registered memory (tested multiple times with memtest)

My rough install procedure was as follows:
from Debian Live CD (Sqeeze)
except for the following.
install media is Raid 5 on 6 disks with LVM structure on top of it.
Network Interfaces (4) are bonded and bridge is using bond.
Initial kernel is linux-image-3.2.0-0.bpo.2-amd64
rebooted to host system.
installed Xfce4 desktop , vim, etc...
recompiled kernel using config from /boot as starting point and only
changed what http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Secondary_GPU_Passthrough said
to.  I used these instructions
http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/i386/ch08s06.html.en to do the
recompile and install the kernel.
installed xen-linux-system-3.2.0-0.bpo.2-amd64 then create HVM config
script.  Got errors then installed xen-qemu-dm-4.0 and that is when I
started getting the Elf binary errors when I try and boot with the Xen
system.  If I boot to the non-xen version of the same kernel, It boots

Please let me know if you need more information or if I need to do more testing.

Thank you
