Hi,

I am trying to setup a new SLES12 as a VM on my SLES11sp3 XEN host. The installation completes but finishes with an error:
Failed to start the VM
Cannot find kernel "/usr/lib/grub2/x86_64-xen/grub.xen
Using config file "/etc/xen/vm/radius

I have tried different disk options layout options but still no joy...

I cannot currently look up the details, but in such cases (where the python code is unable to locate & extract the proper files from the virtual disk), I usually start by locating those files manually and changing the bootloader to ".../domUloader.py" in the DomU config file, so that I can specify the location of the files (kernel, initrd) myself.

Regards,
Jens
