Comp - Xen Box Archives

NaNoWriMo is done. Next up?

I'm nearly 3 weeks done with NaNoWriMo and still haven't picked up another project yet.

I've gotten the parts for my new desktop, the one on which I hope to install Xen, Win7, Ubuntu 9.10 and possibly someday MacOS. I've played a bit with Xen and haven't gotten to the point where I can easily build a DomU with full-screen (read: usable as a primary desktop.)

I'm officially at the point where I need to just make the machine workable and start migrating stuff from the old box. So I think I'm going to dedicate one drive to Win7 and one drive to Ubuntu and dual-boot for now. Maybe someday down the road I'll throw a third small drive in to run Xen and a Dom0 and can just attach the physical drives to their respective DomUs.

So, that's what I'm going to do tonight. The Goal: Have a working Win7 (see below) and Ubuntu 9.10 install tonight.

I have installed Win7 on this new system already, and it needed new network drivers for my motherboard. I also tried to get it to do software RAID on the OS drive and I think it didn't like that. So I plan to just start over. I also plan to download a new network driver on the old system and put it on a USB stick. :-)

Time to get working.
