Description Ian Neal 2017-08-24 17:57:01 UTC
Using a Dell Optiplex 9010 it boots okay with kernel 4.11.7-200, but won't boot with 4.12.8-200. System gets as far as Initrd Root Device and then starts getting dracut-initqueue timeouts, eventually entering dracut-emergency mode

A laptop with the same 4.12.8-200 kernel works fine though.

Possible incompatibility with RAID on the system? The Optiplex 9010 uses Intel Rapid Storage Technology.

Comment 1 Ian Neal 2017-09-24 00:22:22 UTC
Tested against latest 4.12.13-200 still shows the same issue. Is there any further information I can gather to help troubleshoot this issue?
