Take a look at 'Known issues'[1] section:
'There is no Qubes Windows Tools for Qubes R3.0 yet. We are working on
this'

Xen

XENSERVER PV DRIVERS FOR WINDOWS DOWNLOAD - This installation guide provides guidance for multiple deployment scenarios. The goal of the blktap3 project is to obviate the blktap kernel driver which is not upstreamable by enabling direct tapdisk-domU IO request passing. The administration guide provides a reference for the operation and management of a. Most Xen guests that boot in HVM mode actually use a hybrid, known as PVHVM, in which the guest boots as it would normally, but then detects that it is running atop Xen using PV drivers. This provides some significant speedups because the devices get most of the performance of the fully paravirtualized versions. The Windows PV Drivers are built individually into a tarball each. To install a driver on your target system, unpack the tarball, then navigate to either the x86 or x64 subdirectory (whichever is appropriate), and execute the copy of dpinst.exe you find there with Administrator privilege. For more information read the installation instructions.

Needs Review

Important page: This page is probably out-of-date and needs to be reviewed and corrected!


Before installing

After building you should have a 'target' directory with all the stuff you need in it. Copy this to your target machine. If you downloaded a binary zip then extract it to your target machine. For the shutdown monitor, which handles the graceful shutdown/reboot requests from Dom0, you will need the .NET framework 2.0 installed.

NOTE: x64 versions of Vista and Server 2008 require signed drivers. The GPLPV drivers are only test signed. In order to use them you need to enable test signing by running 'bcdedit /set testsigning on' and rebooting.

Uninstalling

If you are upgrading from a pre-0.9.0 release, you will need to completely purge the old drivers from your system.

  • Open regedit and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSet
  • Alter EnumACPI_HALPNP0C080ControlActiveService from 'XenHide' to 'ACPI'
  • You may find some registry keys/values need you to alter permissions before you can edit/delete them.
  • Search for all occurences of UpperFilter or LowerFilter keys containing xenhide.sys and delete them
  • Delete ServicesXen* (anything in Services starting with Xen)
  • Beware of keys/values which 'co-incidentally' have xen in their name such as xenroll.dlll and IVBSAXEntityResolver
  • Don't remove any 'Xen' keys/values under HKLM/HARDWARE/ACPI
  • View files C:Windowsinfoem*.?nf in a text editor, delete all that refer to xen or GPLPV
  • Delete the folders C:WindowsSystem32DRVSTORExen*
  • Delete the files C:WindowsSystem32driversxen*.sys
  • Reboot, making sure not to select a boot entry that specifies /GPLPV, if you are prompted to add drivers for new hardware at this stage, hit the cancel button.
Xen

If you end up with a bluescreen at this point, it might be useful to boot from a windows CD (or .iso file) and press 'R' for recovery console, then use the LISTSVC, ENABLE and DISABLE commands to ensure all xen drivers are disabled *except* for xenhide which should be set to BOOT.

Installing (0.9.5 and above)

  • /! Warning: When installing for the first time, make sure you do NOT boot with /GPLPV specified in your boot entry. This is sure to break things!
  • Run 'Xen PV Drivers <version>.exe'
  • Run 'C:Program FilesXen PV DriversShutdownMon.exe -i' to install shutdownmon as a service (in a command prompt if you want to get feedback that it succeeds).
  • (Windows 2000, XP, 2003) Open C:boot.ini and copy your normal boot entry and add /gplpv to the copy. It should look something like this (excuse the line wrapping):

That should be all that is required. Alternatively, you can install the drivers separately via the device manager if you want, for example if you just want xenpci to do graceful shutdown but don't yet want to try the PV device drivers.

  • (Windows Vista, 2008) (this bit isn't complete) Do the following at a command prompt

Installing (Pre 0.9.5)
