Xen3_DOM0 winxp dom not running
Hi, I'm trying to make Xen work in NetBSD 6.1 in order to virtualize Windows XP for a school project. I have the config file created and the Dom0 configured, however, when I do 'xl create /usr/pkg/etc/xen/win01' the output is:
WARNING: you seem to be using "kernel" directive to override HVM guest firmware. Ignore that. Use "firmware_override" instead if you really want a non-default firmware
 Bad System Call (core dumped) xl create /usr/pkg/etc/xen/win01
I don't know why does the Bad system call happen, and how should i properly create the domain.
My config file is:
Kernel = "usr/pkg/libexec/xen/boot/hvmloader"
Memory = 1024
Shadow_memory = 8
Name = "win01"
Vif = [ 'type=ioemu, bridge=bridge0' ]
Disk [ 'file:/home/xen/winxp.img,ioemu:hda,w','file:/home/xen/winxp.iso,ioemu:hdb:cdrom,r', ]
Device_model_version = 'qemu-xen-traditional'
I have already downloaded a Windows Xp iso and saved it into /home/xen
I dont have much knowledge on how to use NetBSD and Xen so any kind of help will be appreciated.
Your configuration file looks like it is for Xen 3, and it sounds like you're using Xen 4 (using XL). Which version of Xen are you using?
If Xen 3, you need a "device-model" entry pointing at qemu-dm. (I've run Windows XP as an HVM on Xen 3.)
If Xen 4, the example HVM configuration provided doesn't specify a "kernel" entry, just a "builder" entry. (note, I haven't run any Microsoft OS on Xen 4.x -- that I can find evidence of.)
By the way, after the I type "xl create win01.cfg" , besides of showing the "core dumped" error, the domain is created, but with a P (pause) state.
