Can you describe the problems you are having?
Can you post the DomU configuration file?


Here is a sample config file. I try a lot of combinaison (with or witout
kickstar file ..)

import os, re
arch = os.uname()[4]
kernel = "/etc/xen/vmlinuz"
ramdisk = "/etc/xen/initrd.img"
memory = 512
shadow_memory = 8
name = "NUXEO57"
vif = [ 'type=ioemu, bridge=bridge0, model=ne2k_pci' ]
disk = [ 'file:/VM/linux.img,xvda,w', 'file:/VM/centos57.iso,xvdc:cdrom,r' ]
device_model = '/usr/pkg/libexec/qemu-dm'
vfb = ["type=vnc, keymap=fr"]

Whow, this is quite strange, what I usually use (haven't tried it on
NetBSD with CentOS because I use Debian most of the time, but I think
it should work).

Download files from

Sample config file:

kernel = "/path/to/vmlinuz"
ramdisk = "/path/to/initrd.img"

name = "my_centos_domu"
memory = 512
vcpus = 1

vif = ['bridge=my_bridge']
disk = ['file:/path/to/my/img,xvda,w']

After that:

xm create -c /path/to/config

Once the system is installed, remove kernel and ramdisk options and add:

bootloader = "pygrub"

That should do it (I think). Your config file looked like a mess
between a HVM and a PV domain.

It's better but not completly full (i would be more patient after a few seconds the boot process begin).
The install process begin
The retreive of the install.img file it's OK.

But i always have error on the storage file (linux.img created with DD), during the install process i have somme message tha tell me to initialise the DD because there is somme error.

And after the initialisation i have this message :

Input/Output error during read on /dev/xvda ?
