I have installed and setup Citrix XEN Server 6.0 Free on my home computer and i need to install Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit on it.

But i cannot install it.I tried using CD Drive and NFS stored iso but all fails with error


"Your Installation CD ROM couldnt be mounted.This probably means that CD ROM is not in the Drive"

** \ It fails in step 3 ie

Detetct and Mount CD ROM

even after i tried 4-5 times

Do i need to install any support package for installing VMs on XEN OR should i need to upgrade xen to 6.02 for latest ubuntu support??

Used the same iso for installing many VM using XEN type 2 Hyperviosr on ubuntu

  • Question; is your iso correct (md5 sum it) and are you using the virtual disk – Lucas Kauffman Aug 2 '12 at 10:50
  • Also are you using Xen or Citrix XenServer? – Lucas Kauffman Aug 2 '12 at 10:54
  • yes created virtual disk,and used the same iso for installing VM before. – Kevin Parker Aug 2 '12 at 10:54
  • using Citrix XEN server 6.0 – Kevin Parker Aug 2 '12 at 10:55

When booting you will need to press F6 and disable ACPI (needs to be NOACPI). This should be fixed in the latest version I think.

  • ohhh...no.... you solved it again :) :) Thankx alot – Kevin Parker Aug 2 '12 at 11:01
