I have several XEN domU:s running om my server that I have installed in 
the past. I have recently upgraded the dom0 (and most of the domU) to 
Debian Wheezy. Tried installing a new (wheezy) guest today, but it seems 
to fail to mount the initrd if I understand the error correctly. This is 
how I install:

virt-install --name=${DOMU} --ram=128 --disk path=/dev/vg1/${DOMU} --network bridge:vlan200 --nographics --paravirt --location ${URL}

with URL= it 
fails but if I change the URL to point to squeeze instead, the 
installation starts.

virt-install in Debian Wheezy (on my dom0) is version 0.600.1. My dom0 is 
a x86_64 machine.

No idea if this is a Debian problem, a problem with virt-install, or if I 
am doing sometihng wrong myself, so I am asking on this list first.
