I'm running xen-4.3.0 under an ArchLinux dom0, trying to start a windows 7 HVM (using qemu-xen + SeaBIOS) and it seems to be failing to see the boot drive correctly. If I change over to using qemu-xen-traditional, then it works without issue.

From the logs, when it fails:

My disks line is:

Any thoughts?
