[Xen-users] Creating guest in command mode failing when used in para mode

Hi all,
         I am new to running xen in command mode.I have tried creating xen using virt-manager and its working ok.But i can not make it work using command line.For that i installed virt-install 
and run this command (trying to install ubuntu 12.04 64 bit)

virt-install --name vm1 --ram 512 --vcpus=1 -p --description=vm --location=/var/lib/libvirt/images/12.04.iso(64 bit ubuntu) --disk path=/VM/secondvm,size=1 

but its returning 

Starting install...

but in  v mode i am able to create vm.
