The same Intel processors or different ones? You might perhaps need to
do some cpuid levelling either via the hypervisor command line options
or via the cpuid option in your guest cfg.

Are you able to xl create the domain freshly on this system?

Does "xl -vvv restore" give any extra information, how about the logs
under /var/log/xen?

I think it is an EPERM from the hypervisor rather than any dom0 level
thing. My initial thought was that the target system didn't have HVM
enabled but it seems to be doing "better" than that.
