[Xen-users] Error: Boot loader didn't return any data [pygrub boot debian wheezy alpha1 netinst ISO]

Note: I could simply direct boot the appropriate kernel/initrd to get the alpha1 installation going as always done in the past, but I think this should work. The Debian alpha 1 installer page says it should.


$ sudo xm create -c wheezytest.cfg
Using config file "./wheezytest.cfg".
Error: Boot loader didn't return any data!

direct pygrub test run:
# pygrub --kernel=/install.amd/vmlinuz --ramdisk=/install.amd/initrd.gz /BACKUP/dumpz/wheezytest/debian-wheezy-DI-a1-amd64-netinst.iso linux (kernel /var/run/xend/boot/boot_kernel.TjAeCF)(ramdisk /var/run/xend/boot/boot_ramdisk.1RMH9A)

pygrub version is 4.0.2-rc1-pre (I want to avoid upgrading xen right now as this has been running over a year for sure. Actually the debian wheezy install I create will eventually replace my current ubuntu lucid dom0 which will get virtualized)

domU config file:

name = "wheezytest"
memory = 256

disk = [
        , 'phy:/dev/mainvg/wheezytest-root,xvda,w'
        , 'phy:/dev/mainvg/wheezytest-swap,xvdb,w'

vif = [' ']

bootloader = "pygrub"
bootloader_args = "--kernel=/install.amd/vmlinuz --ramdisk=/install.amd/initrd.gz"
extra = "debian-installer/exit/always_halt=true -- console=hvc0"
