Hi,

I am trying to install SLES11 SP1 on XenCenter Virtual image and while
Installation finding that it is showing 4 disks (hda, hdb, sda & sdb)
instead of 2 disks.

Here is my observations:
1. Checked SLES11SP1 OS installation on Xen virtual image (5.6 FP1 -
build38895), seeing 4 disks (hda, hdb, sda, sdb) instead of 2 disks
(either
hda, hdb, or sda, sdb).
2. On The same virtual instance, SLES11 GA shows proper 2 disks hda &
hdb
3. When upgraded the SLES11GA instance with the SLES11SP1 OS, again
during
installation it shows 4 disks and after OS installation completed also
it shows
only 4 disks (hda, hdb, sda, sdb). That is, in SLES11 GA it was only 2
disks
and now after upgrde it shows 4 disks (hda, hdb, sda, sdb).
4. On the same instance, SLES10SP3 is installed successfully and shows
only 2
disks hda & hdb
5. Even with the new virtual instance on XenCenter, I am getting the
same behaviour.

here is the output after SLES11 SP1 installation:
