this can be a problem. Please try again with a plain (non-sparse) file.

Another issue, if the image was created from qemu, can be alignement.
I guess the partition starts at sector 63, which can cause unaligned block
access in the dom0.

For a PV guest, it's better to do the install with a PV kernel too.
