MiniOS is not a fully featured OS, it's an embedded style "library OS"
which you can use to run specific applications as a monolithic PV guest.
Depending on which type of minios you loaded will depend on the
functionality it has. So far as I now none of the normal options include
a shell or anything like that (there are options for stub-qemu,
stub-pvgrub, stub xenstored, stuff like that)

MiniOS isn't a Linux distribution, or even a Linux kernel...

yes, trying a proper OS as a guest would seem wise.
