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

[ Thanks to Boris
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

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