What happens if you start vm-install with no arguments and manually setup your
guest by selecting 'PXE Boot' from the 'Operating System Installation' screen?

I might not hit the exact thing, but here is my trial:
Gathering settings...

Please specify the type of operating system that will run within the virtual
machine. This defines many defaults, and helps decide how to start
paravirtualized operating systems.
Press 'q' or the Escape key to exit.

Virtual machines can use paravirtualization or full virtualization.
Paravirtualization is faster but requires operating system support. Full
virtualization runs a broader range of operating systems but requires hardware
support. Which do you prefer?
1: Full virtualization
2: Paravirtualization
[2] > 2

Please choose a name for the virtual machine.
[pxe] > F12

Specify the amount of memory and number of processors to allocate for the VM.
Initial Memory [256] >
Maximum Memory [256] >
Virtual Processors [1] >

Please specify the type of virtualized graphics hardware.
1: No Graphics Support
2: Paravirtualized Graphics Adapter
[2] > 1

Virtual Disks:
Do you want to add another virtual disk?
(Y / N) [Y] > y

Create a virtual disk based on a device (CD or other block device), an existing
image file (ISO), or a new file. Specify a device by its device node, such as
/dev/cdrom, not its mount point.
What type of virtual disk do you want to add?
1: CD-ROM or DVD
2: Hard Disk
[2] > /dev/VGsys/F12
ERROR Please type a number.
Error: Please type a number.
[2] > 1
Where will the virtual disk physically reside?
[/var/lib/xen/images/F12/xvda] > /dev/VGsys/F12

Virtual Disks:
8.0 GB CD-ROM or DVD (phy:/dev/VGsys/F12)
Do you want to add another virtual disk?
(Y / N) [N] > n

Network Adapters
Do you want to add another virtual network adapter?

Specify the bootable virtual disk (often labeled as Disk 1) or the network
installation source URL. Each CD, DVD, or ISO image required for installation
must be added as a virtual disk.
1: Network URL (ftp://, http://, nfs://, smb://, dev:/, pxe)

Type the install URL: >

Some operating systems support automating the installation by specifying a URL
or file(s). Select a directory to include multiple files.

Some operating systems accept additional arguments, used to customize the
installation or boot process.

my setup is on amd x2, but I believe that does not matter here. I believe this

Let me know If I can assist more.
