I installed FreeBSD 9.0 from the installation CD on a Xenserver 6.0. This virtual machine runs without any problems.
When I try to boot a XENHVM kernel built from the standard configuration file I get the messages
Trying to mount root from ufs:/dev/ada0o2 [rw] ...
mountroot: waiting for device /dev/ada0p2 ...
Mounting from ufs:/dev/ada0p2 failed with error 19.
The only managed disk device shown by the ? command of mount root is cd0.
I also tried to boot the XENHVM kernel after I replaced "ada0" by "ado" in /etc/fstab as suggested by Dave Scott (http://dave.recoil.org) but also in this case the root device could not be mounted.
Boot XENHVM kernel
