From the Redhat bug report:

"Notice that the log emitted when started under Xen, the I810 driver reports
VESA VBE Total Mem: 320 kB, while the non-xen log reports VESA VBE Total Mem:
8000 kB."

I have:

Xen: VESA VBE Total Mem: 832 kB
Standard: VESA VBE Total Mem: 12288 kB

Apparently something fails while trying to tell the BIOS the amount of available video ram:

Will attempt to tell the BIOS that there is 12288 kB VideoRAM

I was able to resolve this issue by setting the UMA to 8MB on my Dell D505.

I have a similar problem with xen-image-2.6.19-4-generic on a Dell Latitude X300 except I didn't see the VESA VBE memory issue.

Installing xserver-xorg-video-intel-1.9.94-1ubuntu3 instead of xserver-xorg-video-i810-1.7.4-0ubuntu1 fixed the problem for me.

Could you please recheck it with Gutsy Final Live CD? In Gutsy i810 driver is deprecated and intel driver is used instead.

I am closing this bug report since this issue should be fixed in Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon 7.10 and there is no response for more than two months.
Feel free to open it again if it still happens in Gutsy with the -intel driver.
