Description Sammy 2007-11-08 10:17:46 EST

One of my machines is not booting with or from

Right after the grub menu screen, it finds the kernel image file but sais
"Setup not found" and stops.

Tne same F8 system boots with the old kernel.

I have different / abnd /boot partitions. One another system where I have
the same partitions BUT a volgroup defined the system boots fine. Here
is the output of the df command:
# df
Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda5             30273116  10749736  17985560  38% /
none                    777316         0    777316   0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda3               101107     15963     79923  17% /boot

It is a SCSI system. On dmesg:

"Setup signature not found"??
Comment 2 Sammy 2007-11-08 15:05:42 EST
Sorry for the delay. Yes, it sais "No setup signature found ..."
What does it mean?
Comment 3 Sammy 2007-11-08 20:45:45 EST
To add some more info: This is a DELL Precision 350, with hyperthreading.
Comment 4 Sammy 2007-11-09 11:38:11 EST
I solved the problem by re-running grub:

  $ grub
  grub> root (hd0,2)
  grub> setup (hd0)
  grub> quit

Now it boots fine. I also tried to replace the grub stage files with the new
ones since they dated back to 2003 on this machine but that did not change
anything. I did not do anything to this machine and updated from F7  to F8
via "yum upgrade". So, I presume something has changed somewhere.

I'm reviewing this bug as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt to
isolate current bugs in the Fedora kernel.


Closing as issue appears resolved.
