Last modified: 2008-07-31 11:25:57 EDT
Description of problem:
This must be some BFM but after couple of updates F9 doesn't boot on MS Virtual
Red Hat nash version 6.0.52 starting
Reading au physical volunes. This may take a while...
No volume groups found
Volume group "VolGroupOO" not found
Unable to access resume device (/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol0l)
mount: could not find filesystem '/dev/root'
setuproot moving /dev failed: No such file or directory
setuproot error mounting /proc: No such file or directory
setuproot error mounting /sys: No such file or directory
Mount failed for selinuxfs on selinux: No such file or directory
switchroot: mount failed: No such file or directory
After 2-5 warm resets booting succeedes !!!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
80% of boots
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start virtual machine
2. Sit and watch boot logging
Are there any kernel switches to try? I obviously use "noreplace-paravirt".
sorry, few more comments:
- i just noticed (the failed boot is way too fast) that _no harddrives are
actually detected_ - too sort probe timeout or something like that?
- since this stared happening i can't poweroff the (virtual) machine, it halts
- fsck found no problems (as expected)
does the trick, let me test it
