Does loading .gz files and multibooting work properly?   I boot Xen from
a GPT partitioned system (with raid as well) and have no issues, but I
don't use gzip'd files.

Aside from that (and that the kernel I am using is a 6.99.something
vintage - which should be close enough to 7.0) my setup looks very similar
to the one described.   I do have physical access to the system though.

You do need to ensure that the boot stuff is correctly set up and installed

rather than the very new EFI boot - that's what I am doing.)
