Installing Windows

To install windows, you'll need an iso. These can be served by an NFS server. Try this:

xe-mount-iso-sr nfs-server:/path/to/isos


Then create a windows VM:

xe vm-install template=Windows\ 7\ \(32-bit\) new-name-label=windows
xe vm-cd-add vm=windows cd-name=win7.iso device=3
xe vm-start vm=windows

PV drivers for Windows

wget http://downloads.xen.org/XCP/debian/xs-tools-5.9.960.iso
mv xs-tools-5.9.960.iso /usr/lib/xen-common/xapi/packages/iso


After doing this, rescan the SR to pick up the new ISO.
