Xen kernel boot hangs up!

I installed and updated a fresh OpenSUSE Leap 42.2 on my laptop wanting to try out Xen. Every thing installed fine and the I started and enabled libvirtd. When booting with the Xen hypervisor I get a quick glimpse of about a page of text then a black screen and the computer hangs up. Being a Xen newbie, I'm not sure how to start diagnosing the problem. Any help appreciated. Here's some info about my system:

It's a laptop with the Optimus dual graphics card gimmick
Virtualization enabled in bios
Dual boot with windows 10

The last line before the system hangs up during boot is:
(XEN) Xen is relinquishing VGA console

If I boot into recovery mode of the Xen kernel, the last line before system hangs is:
[ 2014..190809] EFI Variables Facility v0.08 2004-May-17

I also hooked up an external monitor but nothing is displayed there.
