difficulties to boot under Xen (Xcp)
I'm facing difficulties to get a debian like box booting under xen (xcp exactly). I have to work with LILO...
Here is my lilo.conf :
If I try to write the boot sectors, here are my errors :
The driver used is : "xen-platform-pci"...
thank you in advance !
I've found the answer. I post it down here if somebody faces the same issue...
The solution :
LILO just doesn't supports the xvda (and also vda) paravirtualized disks... The only solution is to change to another boot loader. I've tried grub2 and grub-legacy which worked well.
A workaround :
I've found a workaround. Boot on a debian cd in rescue mode. The drive will mount in sda, replace your xvda entries in lilo.conf by sda and add "root=/dev/xvda1" in the "append" section.
write your changes :
# lilo -M /dev/sda
and reboot on the hard disk.
