Booting XCP installation

Hello everyone,

I've recently retired an old IBM BladeCenter with IBM LS20 bladeservers
(AMD Opteron CPUs) and wanted to test XCP on it, but it seems that I cannot
get to install the operating system because of some SCSI kernel panic.. I
can't really see the whole error though it's something like
EPI scsi_device_dev_context_usercontext and then it says attached scsi
devices.. nothing really helpful though.

I've tried to boot with SCSI disabled (so no hard disks) and the
installation boots fine.. but obviously I have nowhere to install.. I've
also tried to pass different kernel params that I thought might help (i.e.
nodisconnect and scsi_mod.scan=none or async) but nothing seems to help and
I'm not even sure if the params are actually passed to the kernel or not..
any ideas how I could boot this up or should I just manually do it from a
livecd?

I've tried with the XCP 1.5 iso, and here are the actual lines that I see
on my screen:
