Description of problem:
After installation of Fedora 11 Alpha from DVD ISO image (i386), the system cannot boot. After reading the physical volumes, and saying that 2 logical volume(s) are active, it stops with the message:
mount: could not find filesystem '/dev/root'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 11 Alpha
Installation of Fedora 11 Alpha from DVD ISO image (i386)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install from Fedora-11-Alpha-i386-DVD.iso
The system does not complete the boot
The system is running inside VirtualBox xVM Sun v. 2.1.4
Fedora 8 and Fedora 10 both run without problems inside VirtualBox
After reading the comments at:
I solved the problem, booting from the installation CD in rescue mode, changing the file grub.conf so that instead of:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=UUID=...
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda1
Now it boots, it shows the incremental bars on the bottom of the screen until they become fully white, and then it stops! At this stage I don't have access to a login screen.
But I think this is a different bug...
The alpha was quite a long time ago and almost all of the storage code has changed since then. Could you please try again when the beta live cd is released and let us know if you are still seeing this problem? Thanks.
The beta solved the problem. Thanks.
Thanks for retesting.
