    Default XEN troubles. (disk?)

    Hi,

    Followed a webdevster How to install Xen 4 on Debian 6 Squeeze x64 tutorial

    Everything went textbook, until the reboot into the new XEN kernel.

    Tried booting in the following order from grub to see which one fails

    Debian GNU/Linux, with Linux 2.6.32-5-amd64
    Boots Fine

    Debian GNU/Linux, with Linux 2.6.32-5-xen-amd64
    Boots Fine

    Debian GNU/Linux, with Linux 2.6.32-5-xen-amd64 and XEN 4.0-amd64
    Errors

    with quiet passed to kernel
    Failed to setup GSI

    with verbose passed to kernel:
    Write cache: enabled, read cache: enabled, doesn't support DPO or FUA
    sda:
    ata3: lost interrupt (Status 0x50)
    sd 2:0:0:0 [sda] Unhandled error code
    sd 2:0:0:0 [sda] Result: hostbyte=DID_OK driverbyte=DRIVER_TIMEOUT
    sd 2:0:0:0 [sda] CDB: Read(10): 28 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 08 00
    end_request I/O error on device sda, sector 0
    Buffer I/O error on device sda, logical block 0

    It then appears to continuously loop through trying the disk, failing and trying again, slowly counting up through the sectors and blocks, failing and going round again.

    I assume I've missed something, I've re-read the tutorial, don't think I've missed anything maybe XEN treats disks differently, however I'm at a loss, any help appreciated.

    Default

    Never mind, gave up and tried KVM.

    One host OS, with two guest machines, bridged networking, set up and running within 2 hours.
