Thread: Installing Vista 32bit crashes xen

    Unhappy Installing Vista 32bit crashes xen

    I am trying ti install vista 32 bit in some xenU-domain, but after the reboot following Service Pack 1 the virtual machine vanishes.

    This bug seems to be reproducable, I already tried to install vista yesterday and had the same crash. Even after booting the incomplete installation again, it crashes.

    Now, I found the following in xend.log

    [2009-06-13 20:38:23 4495] WARNING (XendDomainInfo:1283) Domain has crashed: name=vista32 id=46.
    and when typing "xm dmesg" I see (I paste here just the relevant lines):
    (XEN) ----[ Xen-3.2.1_16881_04-4.2 x86_64 debug=n Not tainted ]----

    Now it seems, that something very similar happend already to someone else and a fix might be already available:
    [Xen-users] svm.c:83:d917 Bad instruction length 0 - Xen Source

    Any idea how I can get rid of this bug?
    Thanks

    I finally upgraded to 11.1 with Xen 3.3.1 and the bug is vanished.
