         Though I had no enough time recompile xen unstable, I made the
    windows domU running successfully yesterday.
    I noticed that all windows domU image installed under traditional qemu-dm
    will have BSOD if switched to upstream qemu, even without qxl vga setting.

Switching from qemu-traditional to upstream qemu is the same as switching the
full motherboard on a physical computer, so a lot of devices will change.
Windows doesn't like that.

So install Windows with upstream qemu.

What version of Windows are you running? Are you specifying any particular hardware in qemu?

I did a small test where I installed several different versions of Windows (including, IIRC, XP, Win7, w2k3, and w2k8) on qemu-traditional and then upgraded to qemu-upstream. The only issue I had was when I had specified a network card available in qemu-traditional but not qemu-xen, and so when I switched the network card switched and Windows didn't have the right driver installed. When I just went with the default network card everything worked fine.
