What is the best way to go about solving this problem?
As always just ask for more info,

It seemed to fix the irq error, however I'm still getting the IO_PAGE_FAULT
I'll go through the debugging page on the wiki, and see what I can't dig

I know when I have need help before, I was asked to include the
verbose output of the create command and the log files mentioned in
the submitting a bug section. From looking at those logs,  those on
here who know a heck of a lot more that I do where able to spot what
my problem was.  If you can't find it with the steps on the debugging
wiki that may be the next best step.  Also some details on your
hardware and a file or screen print of your xl list command would also
probably be beneficial.

Good luck

After some debugging, here is what I've been able to come up with, if
there's an issue with attachments, just let me know how to properly post the

Included in the zip :
create.xen     - The result of "xl create -d ./win8.cfg"
dmesg-boot.xen - The result of "xl dmesg" immediately after boot
dmesg-win8.xen - The result of "xl dmesg" after failing to install windows 8
grub           - My grub configuration file (/etc/default/grub)
info.xen       - The result of "xl info"
win8.cfg       - The configuration file I'm using for windows 8


Sorry John,
Memory isn't as good as it used to be.  I went back and read the
entire conversation again and I think something clicked.  (Or maybe
just broke).  Try disabling viridian.  I just remembered when I loaded
Win8.1 just to test it out to see if it was bad as everyone said, I
ran into something similar.  If I remember correctly I completely
disabled viridian or at least until I had 8.1 up and running.
Like I said I'm not an expert on this.
Looking over your logs I don't see anything that stands out.
Hopefully something here helps.  If not hopefully one of the guru's
will step in.
Just out of curiosity, Is there is reason for disabling the IOMMU
remapping in your grub file?

Hmm, I disabled the VGA passthrough, and it all seems to work fine, I'm going to try passing my GPU
through now that it's installed, but I doubt that it'll work.

I'm using an XFX Radeon 7850 for passthrough, it's reported to work, so I think that it's the issues
that I've been having with my AMD FX-6300 processor and IOMMU..

If anybody knows of how to fix these issues, that would be great..
