Xen doesn't start: Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
 
Hello,

I have installed Xen on my Debian Etch box and when i try to create a new VM i get this:

Code:

I couldn't find anything on google. Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

Thanks

How exactly did you install Xen, and how did you create your virtual machine? Does your vm use a ramdisk? If not, you should try that.
Can you post the vm's config file from the /etc/xen directory?

Hello,

I have just found the problem. I had to use --ide when creating the machine with xen-creage-image. Now it works.

Thanks.
