Windows is not available for Xen. (The way Xen works is that the
operating system kernel is modified; Microsoft did do a research port
of one version of Windows to Xen, but it wasn't made available.)
I think you'll find you need one of the full virtualisation products
that can run unmodified operating systems; the best known of these is
VMware, which in its "workstation" version can use Linux or Windows
as the host operating system.
Xen is also one of them :) And it works with a NetBSD dom0. All you need
is a CPU with virtualisation extentions.
I have CPU with virtualization extensions just looked inside the bios.
It an intel 2.16 dual core 2.
I wanted to just add the xen extension to my own modified laptop kernel.
Compared to xen it has VGA_POST + X86EMU for suspend resume to work,
also it VM86, can remember why now.
It config'ed, but failed under make (make depend also succesful).
Luckily there is a holiday coming on, so i might have some sime to look
into it next week, to see if there are some conflicting stuff in there
or if i missed something else(to add).
Just including xen3 kernel part, (which includes xen2_dom0)
errored with multiple defined options.
Anyways does anyone know why there isn't a XEN3|2_DOM0 with PAE, not
trying to add options pae, just created an error.
As you can see i just tried some things out, i havent had the time yet
to really look into to how everything works yet.
(but i do know how to boot an alternative kernel;))
