I have a 64 Bit Xen on Ubuntu 10.04,
I have tried installing a 32 bit PVM as follows:

virt-install -p --arch=i386 --name vm --vcpus 1 --ram 2048 --disk /dev/MYLVMREPO/LVM - location http://es.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/precise/main/installer-i386/<br>

When trying to boot I get the following error:

(xend.err "(2, 'Invalid kernel', 'elf_xen_note_check: ERROR: Will only load images built for the generic loader or Linux images')")<br><br>

I have tried following the suggestion posted at:http://askubuntu.com/questions/244192/xen-install-fully-paravirtualized-ubuntu-no-virtual-kernel-in-bootloader
Removing the generic kernal and selecting the virtual kernel packets ends up in a load of dependency errors during the manual aptitute install, but it works and boots up as expected.
After booting PVM apt-get reports no dependency erros and all seems to work fine.
I was wondering if anyone knows of a better way of doing this?
Thanks for the help.
