The latest update version of Xen 4.2 (4.2.1-0ubuntu3.2) appears to be working ok.
Has Xen 4.1 had another update recently as well?
Do I understand you correctly that
1. You use the xm toolstack?
2. You are able to boot into Windows and it switches to the second graphics adapter?
3. Windows is using the proprietary (AMD or Nvidia) graphics driver and graphics performance is just like native (i.e. it performs as if Windows is running natively on hardware)?
If you answer all 3 questions affirmatively, I'll have to update my how-to .
The past few days I've been busy (moving apartments, etc.) so I didn't check for Xen 4.1 updates. Hope to be able to do that soon. I'll post the results.
1. No, I'm using the xl toolstack in Xen 4.2. (I used to use the xm toolstack in Xen 4.1, but have updated after updating to Mint 15).
2. Yes. With the latest 4.2.1-0ubuntu3.2 update, I boot into Windows 8 that uses a ATI 7750 and a seperate screen. It works fine.
3. Yes, Win 8 is using a proprietary AMD driver I installed seperately and the graphics performance appears to be as per native (under the performance index test).
I think your how-to is excellent for xm, but you may want to update it to reflect the xl toolstack eventually (if time permits). Using Mint 15 (LVM) and Xen 4.2 should simplify many things .
