Hi all,
I'm trying to install SLES 8.0 for AMD64.
Before the end of the installation i get this error:
"An error occurred during saving bootloader configuration".
In the end of the email i have included the bootloader section from linuxrc file.
Important:
I'm using pxe install. It works perfect with SUSE 9.0 AMD64 installation on the same computer, but with SLES 8.0 the installation didn't got DHCP after the kernel finished loading, and no manual config helped (module for nic installed good). I have seen that SUSE 9.0 have installer ver 1.5 and SLES 8.0 have ver 1.4, so i used the linux and initrd files from the SUSE 9.0 dvd. Now the installation works good, part of this boot loader issue.
