Hello i was wanting to set up a virtual machine but when i try to boot into the Xen kern all i get is a blank screen… Any advice for this?

I have an Acer Aspire 5920 with an intel 965 gm video card if that helps any

Oh yeah my grub /menu.lst reads like this for XEN

I have the same problem. The screen remains blanc, the computer doesn’t hang because caps-lock still functions. The KDE login screen simply doesn’t appear.

You can change to tty1 using ctrl+atl+F1, or other tties using the same way. But in this case, you can only get command line interface.
