60Gb logical volume for the VM, (XEN) HVM: VMX enabled.

2GB of memory to start should be good.

han, sorry the delay.. it worked now after multiples changes on the xen side.. a couple of questions to close:

- What's does the PV drivers do on the windows server?
-What's the meaning of the "test mode" that appeared on the screen after the last reboot?

I appreciate your time.

Thanks.
