I used to use the unsupported method at the bottom of 
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314082 to solve this.  I 
assume that either the same or a similar method will work for Windows 7.  Make 
sure to connect the disk as hda 
in the xen configuration (as opposed to sda) so that it is attached to the 
emulated IDE controller.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922976 seems to be the equivalent Windows 7
