Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 810149
F17-Beta-RC3 only gets to the grub prompt when booting in EFI mode on Intel BCZ6810H
Last modified: 2013-08-01 04:51:08 EDT
Description of problem:
When I try to boot F17-Beta-RC3-Desktop-x86-64 in EFI mode from CD with an Intel BCZ6810H motherboard I just get to a grub boot prompt; no menu is shown.
Ubuntu 11.10 and 12.04 beta 1 boot just fine; F16 fails in the same way.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
- How can I debug why grub doesn't find or load EFI/boot/bootx64.conf from the CD?
- I see grub-0.97-88 was already build for F17 and F18. Is it worth trying? Is there any way to give it a try without building my own ISO?
FWIW, I was able to install after doing this in the grub prompt:
and adding a "root (cd)" as first line in the menuentry that loads the Fedora kernel kicks off the install
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
