RE: [Fedora-xen] Installing winXP using XM config file

See if this works with vnc=0. You have it set to 1 in your config file

I had a similar problem with FC5 guest.

Subject: [Fedora-xen] Installing winXP using XM config file

I have created a config file for installing WinXP as a VM. See listing
at the end. 

I am not able to install WinXP.

Here's what happens:

1- I have created my config file
2- I copy the WinXP ISO image to /tmp
3- I issue "xm create myconfig" ==> domain starts. Nothing else comes up
on the screen. 
4- I issue "xm list" and I see my new VM listed, but the status is 'b'
for blocked.

However, if I set the boot param in the config file to "d" and issue
"create" the domain starts.
The status is 'r' but still nothing else happens.

Can someone help please?

Thank you,
- Kamal
