Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 55279
mkbotdisk doesn't make a working bootdisk
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:37:50 EDT
Description of Problem:During the upgrade to 7.2 when prompted to make a
bootdisk I did. Later I tried to boot the machine with it and get the
Boot Failed: Please change disks and press any key to continue.
I tried a different disk and even tried making another disk on a
different machne and I got the same results.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How Reproducible: Every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mkbootdisk `uname -r`
2. or choose to make a bootdisk during the anaconda install
No errors are reported until you try to boot with the disk.
Machine should boot.
could you make sure the boot disk isn't out of free space?
I assume the boot.img for installs boots properly on this machine?
I have since upgraded the machines to 7.3 (There were 3 of them with this
problem). I just made a boot disk on one of them and tried it and it booted
just fine. Thanks anyway.
