[ipxe-devel] iPXE ISO fails to boot on an OpenSource Xen VM

I've pulled and built the top of the tree and tested the ipxe.iso on 
numerous physical servers, VMware, KVM, HyperV, and Citrix XenServer, 
all with success.  But when booted on an OpenSource Xen VM (in KVM mode) 
it appears to hang at the "Loading ipxe.krn .......... Ready." line (see 
attached image).  Then after a few seconds the VM halts.

Can anyone give me some suggestions on where to look?  What modules 
should I recompile with DEBUG?
