" @tigerdyr: Thanks for your instructions on blacklisting, e.g. "blacklist=<module>,<module>". " - Does this mean "blacklist=01:00.0,01:00.0" if not can you please give me an example. In my case, it means I added: "blacklist=radeon,snd-hda-intel" GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_XEN_REPLACE_DEFAULT="xen-pciback....

Re: HOW-TO make dual-boot obsolete using XEN VGA passthrough

My PC Questions: 1. I did not installed LM16 with LVM --> is there a problem? if yes --> how can I find a solution? You don't have to use LVM if you don't want to. As I just wanted to see if things worked before investing a lot of time, I skipped many of the steps. 2. All your steps are up to date?...
