Re: new system configuration advice wanted
I am using various gplpv versions, all un-signed on Windows XP, Win 7, Win
Server 2003 and Windows 8 dom-u's with excellent results. Have had to install
twice in some cases, if the new devices do not appear properly in the
hardware/devices list. This is on Netbsd 5.1 dom0/Xen 3.3 and debian 6 dom0
/xen 4. Disk images move perfectly between the two platforms. Am using both
file-backed and iscsi-backed. Have not yet made the jump to netbsd 6, but am
looking forward to.

I've used the GPL PV network driver in a Win 2008r2 guest on a NetBSD dom0.
Not the PV disk driver. I've used the PV disk driver in a 2008r2 on
a linux dom0 with decent luck, but I did install the system with the
emulated driver, then use the signed gplpv installer for 2008 that swaps
the new driver into place. I haven't tried supplying the PV drivers
directly at install time.
