Re: [Xen-users] Blank screen in EFI mode but XEN seems to work

I did so.

Self requote: "When booting from >> xen.efi << i get instantly a blank screen, but the XEN Hypervisor boots and i am able to SSH into it.
Also i am able to issue commands in "blind mode"."

I don't know what was the solution, but now it works.

I formated my boot-partition to start a fresh EFI-installation.
I installed GRUB-EFI and XEN.EFI and told the EFI-Firmware the positions.
After rebooting, and selecting the XEN-KERNEL via the EFI-Boot-Manger, XEN-Hypervisor-Kernel and Linux-Kernel booted and the screen went not blank.

Perfekt. Thanks.

Please search the list archives, this has been discussed several times

You need to boot Xen directly as an EFI application, not via a
bootloader like grub (i.e. you boot Xen *instead* of grub).
http://xenbits.xen.org/docs/unstable/misc/efi.html has some details.
