http://forums.opensuse.org – I am running openSuSE 11.2 (32-bit) with Xen 3.4.1. I used Yast to create an XP vm. The XP install, in creating the vm, seems to have gone okay (install disk was accessed, and went through the usual steps), until it came time to reboot to finish the installation. The XP DomU boot failed with a "NTLDR is missing" message. The XP DomU configuration is: name="winxp2" uuid="86764f24-88ae-a66e-44c4-45c10714efed" memory=512 maxmem=1024 vcpus=1 on_poweroff="destroy" on_reboot="restart" on_crash="destroy" localtime=1 keymap="en-us" builder="hvm" extid=0 device_model="/usr/lib/xen/bin/qemu-dm" kernel="/usr/lib/xen/boot/hvmloader" boot="c" disk=[ 'file:/var/lib/xen/images/winxp2/disk0,hda,w', 'phy:/dev/sr0,hdc:cdrom,r', ] vif=[ 'bridge=br0,model=rtl8139', ] stdvga=0 vnc=1 vncunused=1 apic=1 acpi=1 pae=1 usb=1 usbdevice='tablet' serial="pty" How do I get this to boot?
