booting fedora image


Hi all I'm trying to boot my fedora image:
but I got the error:


grubdom> boot
xc: error: elf_xen_note_check: ERROR: Will only load images built for the generic loader or Linux images: Invalid kernel
xc_dom_parse_image returned -1
close(3)


and this is the result of root and kernel command:

grubdom> root (hd0,0)
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83

grubdom> kernel /vmlinuz-3.3.4-5.fc17.i686 root=(hd0,0) ro quiet splash


Any help is appreciated.

I install Fedora from inertnet on a VMware machine and then convert the .vmdk file to .img using qemu.

what is initrd?
This is my config file:

Quote:
kernel = "/boot/vmlinuz-3.5.0-2.fc17.x86_64"
name = "fedora1"
disk = [ 'file:/etc/xen/fedora1.img,hda,w' ]
#bootloader = "/usr/bin/pygrub"
kernel="/usr/lib/xen/boot/pv-grub-x86_64.gz"

extra="console=hvc0 xencons=tty"
memory = 1024
vif = [ '' ]
root = "/dev/sda1 ro"

sdl=0
vnc=1
vnclisten="0.0.0.0"
vncconsole=1
vncpasswd='howtoforge'
stdvga=0
serial='pty'
usbdevice='tablet'


on_poweroff = 'destroy'
on_reboot = 'restart'
on_crash = 'restart'

This is not a fedora issue.
Nor is it a linux issue.

it is a VMware issue.

please see your documentation on this virtual machine that you are using
