Description of problem:
I'm trying to install Fedora 20 on HP DL360 G2 server using Network Install CD. Server has fake RAID controller with a 80GB mirror configured. The installation completes successfully. However after the server reboots the boot process hangs on "dracut-initqueue: Warning: Could not boot" and "Warning: /dev/mapper/lsi_biijdfedaea1 does not exist". I have tried multiple installation types: lvm, btrfs partitioning; minimal, desktop install. Nothing helps. What's strange is that booting into Rescue kernel everything works. I can see all server partitions including /boot one.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Cleanly install the server with fake RAID.
2. Try to boot the server.
The server doesn't boot.
It should boot.
Probably related to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1040669 but initrd regeneration doesn't help at all.
Not sure if this would help but:
# lsinitrd --kver 0-rescue-3f4d3a3eb2e74ef7a718c017485bc0f3 |grep thin_
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 387784 Jan 22 12:52 usr/sbin/thin_check
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2190220 Jan 22 12:52 usr/sbin/thin_dump
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2190120 Jan 22 12:52 usr/sbin/thin_repair
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2190204 Jan 22 12:52 usr/sbin/thin_restore
# lsinitrd --kver 3.12.8-300.fc20.i686+PAE |grep thin_
However I must note that I'm using standard LVM partitioning, not LVM Thin.
1. Install Fedora 20.
2. Reboot, it will fail.
3. Boot Rescue kernel.
4. Install any other kernel from fc20 repository. It could be older or newer.
5. Boot into that installed kernel.
6. Remove originally during FC20 setup installed kernel and add it back (yum remove/yum install).
7. Boot the server normally.
I have confirmed this twice now. Seems like something is not installed or generated correctly from anaconda during install.
