Description of problem:
I’m an HP employee and trying to install RHEL 5 initial release on our HP proliant server for testing.
I downloaded OS from HP internal site http://blofly.cca.cpqcorp.net/IA32/RedHat/EL5/initial_release/
While installing in graphics mode display hangs and gives junk characters. And after installation when it reboot for first times it will hang for ever.
It wont come up after that reboot. We tried to with installation is few of HP proliant servers but it results same.
Any work around for this issue.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install using CD's
OS should boot
Installed on DL380 G4, ML 350 G4 machines (Xeon processor X86)
Where does it hang? The bootloader? The kernel? elsewhere?
It will hang in bootloader I believe (I'm not sure). At the time of
installation it will show junk characters in Graphics mode. So i installed
through text mode. It completed all 6 CD's of installation (selected
everything). After the first restart it will hang while starting of booting
process (Not sure it is bootloader or kernel)
This bug is very old, but might be related to
can you still reproduce this issue with newer versions of grub?
As we are not able to determine whether the problem is in grub or kernel closing as insufficient_data.
