Description of problem:
I installed Xen per http://www.fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraXenQuickstart
Upon rebooting to the Xen kernel I get this:
(Xen) System RAM: 512MB (523836kB)
(Xen) Xen heap:10MB (10652kB)
(Xen) PAE disabled.
(Xen) Unknown interrupt
At this point it just hangs. To recover must reset machine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xen 3.0 devel
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot to Xen kernel
Actual Results: Same as in Description
Expected Results: Xen should boot for the first time.
I am running FC4 in Virtual PC 2004 on a Windows XP Pro SP2 machine. I can boot to the regular FC4 kernel with KDE fine, just not able to boot to Xen.
I have tested and the same problem on my machine.

Xen does a lot of things that a normal kernel does not. VirtualPC may simply
not be supporting the x86 architecture features that Xen relies on. It sounds
more likely to be a VirtualPC problem than a Xen problem; and certainly
something that we really cannot debug ourselves.
