RE: Reboot on *DOM0* while/after installing GPLPV drivers

I'm seeing similar behavior - quite a pain when dom0 halts - after reboot when 
trying to start the windows 7 image starts it blue screens and dies - so it 
appears that the crash has corupted the windows file system.

I see there are notes that xen3.1 kernel has pci passthough - is that required 
for the GPLPV drivers or are people having success with xen 4.1 or 4.2?  I'm 
using 4.1

I believe I tried installing the pci (manditory) GPLPV driver successfully - 
the next one on the list was the vbd driver but I believe I tried skipping that 
one and tried another one with the same result.

I am quite interested in having this issue resolved - When I have time I might 
see if I can figure out how to get a serial console connected to help in the

I've been using the PV drivers on win2003 without problems.
Do you have a serial console ? It's possible that xen itself is
panicing but you won't see its meesage on a VGA console.
Also, using xen-debug.gz may give more details (with serial console)
