Subject: [gentoo-user] Xen domU Issues with partition table gpt
Date: Thu, 21 Oct 2010 17:07:25
1 Hello,
3 I installed the gpt table partionning on my system, which allow me to have more as 4 partitions . It works
4 fine to boot from every partition from a standard kernel
5 Of course, I enabled the gpt support on the gentoo .
6 config. For other distros , i must check. that is not the problem.
8 But now I changed a test partition to a xen
9 dom0 (gentoo 2.4.34-r3-xen ). the dom0 boot fine . But now when i start a domu , guest modified kernel 2.6.34-r6 , i
10 get an issue. the domU boot process starts good , but when it is trying to mount the root partition, i get an "unknown
11 partition table" and xvda: and no partitions number like "xvda1...."
13 Idea? or some similar experiences ?
15 Thank
16 you very much ?
18 My system have the VT-X (and enabled in the bios , if anybody asks....) , i could try to start the
19 xen-guest as hvm (but from a partition , not an disk image) .. but it did not work...
20 it is my second issue...
21 Regards
