Because of security reasons the DomU will nog start on this type of machine. See :

'Xen will not allow creation of DomU on this CPU for security reasons. Pass "allow_unsafe" as boot option to Dom0,
when all the guest kernels are trusted or when creating new DomU's.'

So, what i did:

machine:/boot/grub/ vi menu.lst

Search for the title with Xen kernel and at ' allow_unsafe' after the kernel
root (hd0,0)
kernel /xen.gz allow_unsafe
module /vmliniz- root=/dev/system/root

And reboot


amd64, suse11, xen
