XEN Centos 7 guest on Debian 7 Dom. Possible?

xen-image-create --dist only has debian distributions to chose from.
Some of the tutorials I have found discuss Solaris/Windows as guests.
However, for me I would want to setup Centos7 as an virtual guest.

Is this possible and also relatively easy? If so can someone point to some nonsense tutorial

It should be easy to install Centos 7 as a virtual guest.

Once you have the .iso of Centos on your machine it's a matter of telling the VM where the .iso of Centos is and run it in the VM.

Good luck.

I have (at work, job ending last December) I worked on a SUSE server with multiple XEN guests, one of which had CENTOS 6 installed and running an OpenVZ kernel so it could run multiple CentOS 7 guests for web servers.

If that could work that well (and it did work well, as long as we never upgraded a kernel) then you CAN do almost any combination you can imagine. The only question will be how much work do you want to put into it.

Your case, CentOS on Debian, should be EASY.
