Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1018925
initramfs created during disk image installation does not boot
Last modified: 2014-06-17 21:40:33 EDT
Description of problem:
The new default for initramfs generation is hostonly, which makes little sense when you are installing the OS to a disk image file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. patch anaconda to fix bug 955202
2. perform an installation to a disk image file on x86
System fails to boot after installation is complete.
Newly installed system boots successfully.
It is also necessary to tell dracut to use /dev/disk/by-uuid/ symlinks to reference block devices instead of trying to resolve them to device node paths at initramfs creation time.
I have a patch to fix this. I'll be sending it off for review today.
Retested with anaconda-19.31.34-1.el7, installation to a disk image was successful, it was possible to boot from the image in kvm.
Thanks, moving to VERIFIED.
