I am having a problem booting an Intel xSeries 336 from cdrom. I have
tried both the 3.7 cd image and the latest snapshot image and both have
the same symptoms.
When the machine boots, it loads the kernel into memory correctly, and
begins probing the pci bus. I haven't got the exact dmesg as the machine
never reaches a point at which I can capture it, but the console shows
something like this:
pcibios0 at bios0: ...
pcibios0: PCI IRQ Routing Table ... (11 Entries)
pcibios0: PCI Exclusive IRQs: ...
pcibios0: PCI Interrupt Router at ... ("Intel 82801EB/ER LPC" ...)
At this point, the machine hangs for a few seconds, then the screen
clears and the machine reboots. On the next boot the system fails with
an error relating to a NMI at 0x0 which I presume is related but may not
be. The system log does not contain any errors.
I can get into the boot_config utility by using the -c switch, but the
machine crashes when I proceed in the same manner.
The same machine starts without a problem with Linux and Windows boot
cds. It has a p4 cpu, diskless, and dual broadcom BCM5721 gigabit
Is there anything that I can try to get the system to boot? BIOS
settings perhaps? I've tried disabling the ethernet adapters and
hyperthreading already with no effect.
