Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 187573
megaraid driver hangs with "wait for fw to boot"
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:24 EST
Description of problem:
We have two Rackable dual Opteron servers with 8GB RAM and a MegaRAID SCSI 320-1
controller (firmware version 1L37). When trying to boot RHEL4 U3 64-bit AMD64
for install on either server, it hangs while loading the megaraid_mbox driver.
The final output is "Wait for fw to boot" with a timer that counts down to 0
This problem doesn't occur when booting RHEL4 32-bit x86 or FC5 64-bit AMD64.
Upgrading the controller firmware to 1L47 (released 5/11/06) fixed this problem.
Feel free to close this ticket.
