Normally that shouldn't make a difference (the AMD 64bit processors can also run 32bit operating systems).

Where exactly do you have the NFS problems? In dom0 (the host system) or in domU (the virtual machines)?

Hi Falko,

thank you for your replies.

Well, I can't boot into Xen at all.
It is the very first time attempting to boot into Xen, before setting up any domUs. Right at the bottom of page 3 of the tutorial, where we shutdown for reboot.
http://howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_xen3_debian_p3


As I said I have used the tutorial to install Xen on other PCs with no problems, so it seems to be a problem specific to this machine. (Sunfire X2100, Opteron singe core, 80GB SATA, 2GB RAM)

I read on the Xen Users list that it tries in desperation to boot from NFS if the proper root fails, hence I wondered if it was an issue with the 64 vs 32 bit processor. I'm pretty sure the grub is pointing it to the right place.

So any other thoughts?

Then it seems to be a hardware problem. You can try to play around with the dom0 kernel (i.e., compile it again and include more drivers).
