By images do you mean just the LVM volumes without the associated
configuration files or something else? I'm not 100% clear if you are
trying to boot from those same images or from some sort of restore from
backup scenario.

How were these guests originally created?

This is an HVM guest then I guess?

100% CPU usage is for the guest VCPU or for a dom0 VCPU -- e.g. the one
running the associated qemu?

Which qemu version is being used?

If it is the qemu taking the time then strace might give you a clue
where/what it is doing.

If it is the guest VCPU then perhaps xenctx (in /usr/lib/xen-X.Y/bin
IIRC) might give a hint.

I think the cfg, xl -vvv output and the xl and qemu logs would be useful
to see, if only to rule out spotting something there.
