CentOS fails to install as Xen domU

Postby devzero » 2017-03-20 00:48

Domain0 is a Jessie with 4.7.0-0.bpo.1-amd64.

domU installation works great if domU is also a Jessie:
Code: Select all
# virt-install --connect xen:/// --paravirt --name d81 --vcpus 2 --memory 512 --disk /dev/VG0/d81 --graphics none --os-variant generic --location http://ftp.tu-chemnitz.de/pub/linux/debian/debian/dists/stable/main/installer-amd64/

But as I try to install a CentOS7 domU with the same command:
Code: Select all
# virt-install --connect xen:/// --paravirt --name c71 --vcpus 2 --memory 512 --disk /dev/VG0/c71 --graphics none --os-variant generic --location http://mirror.i3d.net/pub/centos/7/os/x86_64/

It always stucks before anaconda becomes alive:

Anyone an idea what's wrong here?

No idea, sorry.
It does seem to be something specific to the Cent7 install method, so you might get better info via their channels - unless someone looking here has run into it too.
Do the Xen docs have any tips or requirements for the two different OS's?
