How much memory do you have, and does the kernel-debug kernel work? I am 
chasing a similar sounding crash on my 4GB machine. A workaround for me is 
to put dom0_mem=max:2GB on the xen line. Curiously enough it did work 
without this before Fedora stripped out the debugging options, and the 
debug kernel still boots for me.

If you want to see the crash information try adding vga=ask,keep to the 
xen line and console=hvc0 to the vmlinuz line (and pick a vga mode when 
asked). Ideally you would set up a serial console and capture the whole 
output, as detailed on the xen.org wiki, but my hardware doesn't make that
