I have Open Source Xen installed on 2 servers. I'm attempting to move a HVM (Windows) from server 1 to server 2 by simply copying over the disk image and the xen configuration file for that VM. When I try to start the VM on server 2 and VNC into it, I see the error "A disk read error occurred. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart". Neither servers are configured to use LVM. Please assist me.

Thanks

I copied the file using aget from server A to server B. I guess there's some kind of filesize limit and only 2 GB was copied.
After using wget to grab the full 100GB, my issue was solved.
