Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 524052
Boot hang when installing HVM DomU
Last modified: 2014-06-23 22:51:32 EDT
Description of problem:
Attempted to boot a fully virtualized DomU with rawhide's 2.6.31-14.fc12.x86_64 for installation hangs almost immediately.
Steps to Reproduce:
Select install from the boot menu
Hangs after printing the following
Probing EDD (edd=off to disable)... ok
There are no logs in xm dmesg
Note, a 32-bit HVM boots and installs on a 32-bit host
Moving to kernel-xen for now since a 64-bit HVM rawhide boots past this point on an upstream Xen host.
There's no kernel-xen in Fedora - sounds like you need to change the product to RHEL5?
ah yes, thanks Mark. Moving to RHEL5.
