Re: [Fedora-xen] Installing winXP using virtual manager



Presuming that you called your domain "winXP" and your winxp install
image is in /opt/disks/ and is called winxp.iso

Run "xm list" do verify that the domain is not running.

Edit /etc/xen/winXP file.

you'll have a line for disk that looks something like:

disk=[ 'file:/my/vm/location/disk.img,ioemu:hda,w',]

Edit that line to include your winxp cd.

disk=[ 'file:/my/vm/location/disk.img,ioemu:hda,w','file:/opt/disks/winxp.iso,hdc:cdrom,r',]
If you have a boot= line then make sure it's boot = 'c'

Then start the domain with xm create winXP
