Boot Loader Not Installed in Rhel6 Beta

Just a heads up I thought I’d share in the hope that it’ll save someone some time, when installing RHEL6 beta under Xen, be aware that pygrub currently can’t handle /boot being on ext4 (which is the default). So in order to run rhel6 under xen, ensure that you modify the partition layout during the installation process.

This turned out to be a real head scratcher for me, and initially I thought the problem was something else as Xen wasn’t being very helpful with error messages.

Hopefully there’ll be an update for this soon!
