Hello,
when I'm trying to install WIndows Server 2008 on my Xen 4.1 on Debian Wheezy, the guest os crashes after a few minutes and on my Dom0 i get Kernel Errors even when I want to install something on the Dom0 or when i want to reboot it.

    Chris,

    I located this HowTo which apparently covers installing Windows 8 using Xen 4.1.3 on Wheezy:

    http://linux-bsd-sharing.blogspot.com/2012/10/howto-xen-413-windows-8-hvm-domu-with.html

    Perhaps you can review to see if anything helps. I will continue to see if I can find anything more specific to your case.

    If not, you might want to consider posting this info with details as to errors on the xen-users mailing list. There are more people who help with debugging issues over there.

    Russ,

    the Tutorial didn't help. I did all steps like in this Tutorial. But I think this is a kernel issue. Or what do you think?

    These messages look like Kernel Errors.

    It sure looks like a kernel Oops alright as far as I see. But I suggest taking this one to the xen-users mailing list. More hardcore folks tend to hang out there than here.

    You might also want to look at this page for collecting information:
