Description Piotr Wojciechowski 2006-08-09 20:26:07 EDT
Description of problem:
Installation process of FC5 on HP Proliant DL380 went without any problem but
after restart system is not booting. Grub installed correctly but after
selecting right option from menu system starts booting and hangs with error
"mount: could not find filesystem /dev/root". In rescue mode I can correctly
mount and access to my volumes. They are on device /dev/cciss/c0d0
From grub command line it looks like /dev is empty but from rescue mode I can
see devices files (dunno if thats how it should be).

I have 3 79GB HDDs inside set as RAID 1.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC5 in HP DL380
2. Try to boot

Actual results:
System hangs without booting

Expected results:
Properly booted system

Additional info:
Installer installs SMP kernel altho I have only one processor inside

Fedora Core 5 is no longer maintained. Can you reproduce this bug in Fedora 8?
Comment 2 Piotr Wojciechowski 2008-03-09 04:08:57 EDT
No, we no longer using this server and never were able to run Fedora on it.
