james@3 1 This is my GPL'd Xen HVM PV drivers for Windows. You can contact me at james.harper@bendigoit.com.au, or on the xen-devel mailing list.
james@3 2
james@3 3 Only block device drivers are supported so far. Also it's probably only really useful to anyone who knows something about windows driver development.
james@3 4
james@3 5 My test environment is Xen 3.1.1 (64 bit Hypervisor) and Windows 2003 sp2 (32 bit PAE). YMMV.

james@3 7 You can get the source using Mercurial at http://xenbits.xensource.com/ext/win-pvdrivers.hg.

james@3 9 Please do not in any way consider it ready for production use. Definitely do not use them on a production DomU. While I have never seen them cause a problem with the hypervisor or Dom0, I would also be very
james@3 10 wary of using them on a production physical machine too. It now seems fairly sane in use, I haven't had a crash for a while, but I haven't done nearly enough testing yet.
