Subject RE: Debian and Ubuntu ISO cannot be installed
Date Fri, 01 Jun 2012 02:11:22 GMT
XenServer VHD is a little bit different with standard VHD, XenServer VHD has two levels of
bitmap, while standard VHD only has one level.

VHDs from HyperV may work on XenServer host, but we did see VHDs from HyperV cause VM on XenServer
Host crash.

So, CloudStack only support VHD which is created by XenServer Host.
