It still sounds like it might be the same problem - even just having the 
CDROM drive "available" (with no media mounted) for the VM caused it to 
hang, in the end I had to log into the XenServer console and use 'xe 
vbd-destroy uuid= UUID of the CDROM for my VM' to actually remove the CDROM 
from the VM.

On my system if the kernel came up and showed a CDROM even being detected 
(regardless of if it had media in it or not) - it didn't boot. The only way 
to boot it was to remove the CDROM from the VM completely (so it doesn't 
show as detected by the kernel).
