- Works for me, like below. But I do recall having had issues with it.
- I think it only worked with /dev/rsd0d, not /dev/sd0d.
- kernel='/usr/pkg/lib/xen/boot/hvmloader'
- builder='hvm'
- memory='384'
- device_model='/usr/pkg/libexec/qemu-dm'
- name='svartkonst'
- vif=['bridge=bridge1,type=ioemu,model=e1000']
- disk=['phy:/dev/rsd0d,hda,w']
- boot='c'
- serial='pty'

Have you ever used a partition other that 'd'?

I've not been able to create an HVM using a partion on which a
mounted file system exists.

Can you explain what you mean by 'partition on which a mounted file system exists'? If a filesystem is mounted in a dom0, you can't open that a second time for a domU.
