[Fedora-xen] Probems installiing windows under xen in FC6



Hello,
I am trying desperately to install windows under xen in FC6 on x86_64;
my processor has virtulaization extensions (as can be seen from flags of
/proc/cpuinfo).
The kernel I have is the one from the FC6 DVD, 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6xen.


I had prepared a configuration file , windows.hvm, which is
given fully in the end of this message.
When I ran :
xm create windows.hvm , there is some window on the screen for a second then
it is closed.

On the console I see
xm create windows.hvm
Using config file "/etc/xen/windows.hvm".
Started domain ExampleHVMDomain
and that's it.


I am not sure about this line :
 disk = [ 'file:/var/lib/xen/windisk.img,ioemu:sda,w' ]
	
I am not sure about something: I do indeed have a sata disk; which is sda;
but when using qemu, should it also be sda?

I see in the kernel log the following:

rh kernel: device tap0 entered promiscuous mode
rh kernel: audit(1163952063.221:41): dev=tap0 prom=256 old_prom=0
auid=4294967295

and this is windows.hvm:

any ideas what can cause the problem?
