Setup Debian Lenny PV & HVM DomUs (64-bit) sharing same image device at Xen 3.4.

[ Thanks to Boris Derzhavets for this link. ]

"Posting bellow provides a workaround for failure of straight forward virt-install Debian Lenny 64-bit DomU via location http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/dists/lenny/main/installer-amd64/ . It doesn't require debootstrap involvement and would work on OpenSolaris 2010-02-124 and Solaris Nevada 124 as well. Download mini installer iso image and virt-install Lenny HVM DomU:-

# wget http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/dists/lenny/main/installer-amd64/current/images/netboot/mini.iso

# virt-install --debug -n Debian5HVM --hvm -r 1024 --vcpus=1 -f /dev/sda9 --vnc -c /home/boris/mini.iso"
