Re: Xen DomU won't boot

The host (dom0) was built from the net boot CD, and the guest(domU) was built using debootstrap.

I get the same results when I use xvda.

How did you build the etch filesystem?

These are warnings that can be ignored (can't load modules for
harwdare domU doesn't have).

What happens if you try using xvda and xvda2 as domU devices?  Don't
forget to update domU's /etc/fstab.
