    I am trying to install Fedora into a HVM without needing VNC. This
would entail completing the entire installation process via "virsh

    I have managed to convert a running HVM to use the xen console for
both grub and bootup so that I can use "virsh console". I have been
able to install paravirtualised linux using the "virt-install" utility
which completes the installation without use of VNC.

As far as installing a HVM, the closest I have managed to get is by
setting up a VNC window, booting from the install ISO image and altering
the GRUB command line to add "console=ttyS0". This allows me to then close
the VNC window and progress through the rest of the install via "virsh
console" (it even adds the "console=ttyS0" to the installed version, and
sets up grub for serial as well).

Is there any way to get the initial install ISO's grub menu to appear on
ttyS0 so that I can install without needing VNC at all? Preferably without
having to modify the ISO, as it is the one downloaded from Fedora's
