Re: [Xen-devel] XCI: can we get to the demo state?

I have not had a success with the 2.6.27 XCI kernel due to a number of issues

Success with build.git after the dev team fixed..
XCI Kernel fails to boot: 2 reasons
Randomly stops and freezes after initialising the 1st core on the processor
(keyboard lockup / total machine lockup) have to hard reset to try again...
If it passes this point, kernel then continues to load all processor cores, and
upto SATA controller (AHCI Mode). The driver loads the disk sd(..) and then the
system reboots - no messages - I think just before initrc is started.
I have no RS232 on this board, so am waiting for a 1394 adapter for laptop before I can debug further...
Any pointers to getting further would help; I can't even get the point of
trying pass-through for vga!
are you able to boot with normal xen-unstable and the 2.6.27 ?
Did you try to tweak acpi or smp in your dom0 (or xen) command line ?
you can try to set nosmp, acpi=0, maxcpus=1 to see if it helps (see xen
documentation for the xen equivalents).
