Description Mike Burns 2011-10-27 13:24:45 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #747102 +++

It appears that RHEV-H installation fails when booted in EFI mode.


Bug 747102 has setup the partitions for allowing boot in EFI mode.  This bug is to do the actual setup needed to setup the ESP

Screenshot of grub menu booted with grub.efi

grub.conf also needs to be in the same folder with grub.efi
When grub.efi is selected manually in UEFI setup menu, it shows grub menu but fails to find partition - need to investigate why.

See bug 748725 comment 5 - if default is to try EFI and then legacy, fixing EFI boot shouldn't be a blocker. We only need to push the disk layout change since that affects future upgrades.

The note update was included in time that it's in the release notes book, I'm going to clone this so that we can action it in the actual books as a z-stream item (at the very least the Installation and Evaluation guides).

according to c#19 in bug 748725, move this bug to status "verified".

"This time can boot successful with parameter "--efi". It is useful.
Install RHEV-H can successful."

boot failed in Dell R510
Comment 33 Peter Jones 2012-05-16 14:31:39 EDT
Also using \EFI\ovirt is in violation of the specification.
Comment 42 Mike Burns 2012-05-24 11:55:37 EDT
For QE:  Please test all scenarios except the one below.  A problem was found in the scenario below with brew builds only.

Burn iso to cd and boot in UEFI mode causes immediate kernel panic.
Comment 43 Mike Burns 2012-05-24 12:00:28 EDT
On second thought, leave this as ON_QA.  The above issue will be split out in a different bz.
Comment 44 yuanquan chen 2012-05-27 23:31:11 EDT
Verify this bug with rhevh-6.3-20120523.1 on Dell R510. Boot from usb boot media under UEFI mode and install to local disk, then boot from the local disk under UEFI mode, it successes.
