I have created a windows 7 HVM with Xen, no networking hardware is detected by 
the HVM. I have NIC set to be hypervisor default, it should be using a bridged 
connection. If I try to specify a particular NIC during HVM creation I am 
presented with the error:

Unable to complete install: 'internal error: libxenlight failed to create new 
domain 'testing''

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/asyncjob.py", line 96, in cb_wrapper
    callback(asyncjob, *args, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/create.py", line 1983, in do_install
    guest.start_install(False, meter=meter)

    if ret is None:raise libvirtError('virDomainCreateLinux() failed', 
libvirtError: internal error: libxenlight failed to create new domain 'testing'

I think that this is probably related. I notice that since I switched to xl 
from xm a lot of things seem to be broken. I'm able to passthrough PCI devices 
now, but I can't set a specific NIC and I can't reboot the machine from

I'm able to force off the domu but if I ever power it back on it will not be 
able to work with VNC. I need to reboot dom0 to be able to get vnc to work
