I'm new to XEN, but I have a great book ("The Book of XEN") which is helping me get started. I have learned to use "virt-manager" to create a new VM, I have my dom0 running, and I want to add a domU, and I want it to be Kubuntu 9.10. But every attempt to use a Kubuntu install CD results in "not bootable" errors for the install disk. I have booted from the CD, so I know it's not corrupt.
I also tried using "xm" manually to create the vm with the following configuration with the same result as in virt-manager:
name = "mx8711kbu"
maxmem = 768
memory = 768
vcpus = 1
bootloader = "/usr/bin/pygrub"
on_poweroff = "destroy"
on_reboot = "restart"
on_crash = "restart"
vfb = [ ]
disk = [ 'phy:/home/xen/domains/mx8711kbu/disk0.img,ioemu:hda,w','file:/home/xen/domains/mx8711kbu/kubuntu-9.10-desktop-i386.iso,ioemu:hdc:cdrom,r' ]
vif = [ "mac=00:E0:B8:BF
Am I stuck, or is there a way to do this? I do not have hardware virtualization?. That's not an option. I did a lot of searching on the web without much luck before posting this. I know this is not a new problem. I've found references to it.
Thanks in advance of any and all help or questions that my get me unstuck.
