Ubuntu boots but Xen hypervisor doesn't

Having a problem with installing Xen on a server. I have 13.04 successfully running already, but when I try to boot the Xen 4.2 Hypervisor, I get:
WARNING! No console will be available to OS
amongst the various grub boot messages (after "loading xen" and before "loading linux").
This is on a Mac Mini, and I'm using grub-efi (which boots fine and is working). I wouldn't mind removing the hybrid partition table at some point, but it's working for now and I'm less motivated due to that. This also happened with 12.10 so I re-installed with raring (also the amd64+mac version) to see if it would work any better.
I have the expected 6 options in my grub menu (Ubuntu, advanced, Xen, advanced, macos-32, macos-64). The default Ubuntu works fine, boots quickly, gets a DHCP address and I can SSH in. The Xen entry never boots dom0 I believe, though hard to confirm that because the display goes black and shows nothing.
This Mini is in a rackmount chassis and is intended to be headless, so I don't actually care that the console won't work except that I can't reach dom0 over the network. If I could SSH in and start configuring my VMs, I'd be happy.
Any suggestions appreciated! Thank you!
