Boot loader install failed
Last modified: 2016-09-13 12:23:37 EDT
Description of problem:
Boot loader install failed in Anaconda
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Uncertain (will update later)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install ISO to Bare Metal
Boot loader install
Hardware has been used successfully to install ISO.
Worked second time using exact same method
Well, now a different error :-/
KickStart Error: /usr/sbin/authconfig is missing. Cannot setup authentication.
Running memory test to see if it is a hardware issue.
Memory test + CPU test passed.
Trying install with 20151222.t.0
BootLoaderError: boot loader install failed (2nd occurrence)
stage2dev: existing 512 MiB partition sda1 (85) with existing cfs filesystem mounted at /boot
self:<pyanaconda.bootloader.GRUB2 object at 0x<hex_address>>
grub_args: ['--no-floppy', '/dev/sda']
stage1dev: existing 931.51 GiB disk sda (11) eith existing msdos disklabel
s/cfs/xfs/ in Comment 5.
doesn't seem to be a hardware problem.
Worked on the 4th time so this is an intermittent issue for now.
Reoccurred with RHCI-6.0-RHEL-7-20160115.t.0
First time: Panic that went off screen
Second time: Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
Third time: Boot loader install failed
Trying wiping partitions and reinstalling
If so, I'd like to see the output from 'parted -s /dev/sda u s p free'
It looks like grub2 didn't recognize the biosboot partition
Authentication error occurred again - splitting off to new bz.
Haven't seen this issue in QCI 1.2 -- moving to VERIFIED
