kickstart install hangs unless text mode is used
Last modified: 2008-07-24 16:30:31 EDT
Description of problem:
I am trying to do a kickstart installation of AS4 update 3 on HP Proliant BL20p
Blade center. The install hangs when it gets to "Loading cciss driver" and never
goes any further. I did not have this problem when doing kickstart installations
of AS3 update5 on the same Blade center.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
AS4 update 3
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start kickstart install
Hangs on cciss driver load
cciss driver should load
I am not sure if this is related to anaconda but from what I have read it might.
We were able to load the machines by doing a "text" install via kickstart
Joe, is the text mode install an adequate workaround for you?
I'll assign this to anaconda so they can have a look. I expect the priority will
be low, since you have a workaround.
Using the text install mode we were able to load the hp blades.
We also had to add "pci=noacpi" option
This was an adequate workaround
Since this is an ancient report and our general testing tests kickstart in text,
gui, vnc and cmdline modes and all modes are currently working, I'm going to
close this. If you don't agree or encounter the issue again, please reopen.
