Hello,

I created a guest from XML without a <bootloader> tag. When I run dumpxml on the guest, I notice that an empty <bootloader /> tag is appended. Is this the expected behavior? This seems to differ from the behavior of other optional tags.

Yes & no. You should get a bootloader tag added only if you didn't
already have a kerenl/initrd tag.

What version of Xen are you using ? Please capture the output of
  'xm list --long {NAME OF GUEST}'

sudo /usr/sbin/xm list --long domU1

    (on_crash destroy)
    (uuid 12278656-c4c9-11dc-8852-feffffffffff)
    (bootloader_args )
    (vcpus 1)
    (name domU1)
    (on_poweroff destroy)
    (on_reboot restart)
    (bootloader )
    (maxmem 128)

            (ramdisk /tmp/default-xen-initrd)
            (args 'TERM=xterm ')
        )
    )

Just wanted to follow up on this issue. Since this guest has a kernel tag, it should not have a bootloader tag - is that correct?

Thanks!
