I have a strange problem. I have an IBM e325 server with two opteron
chips on it. We installed SUSE 9.1 on this machine with out any problems
and it works great. We just purchased SLES 9 and now we are trying to
install SLES 9 on the machine but the install fails.
AFAIK SLES9 comes with a support package where you can ask for
installation help - so if nobody here can help, look at the support
information for SLES.
The machine boots and starts the install and gets to
the point where it
start to load the RAM disk with this message on the screen.
"Loading data into Ram disk 57950 KB"
Then on the console I see this message
Loading image "/var/adm/mount/boot/root"
/dev/ram2: unknown fs type
mount: /dev/ram2: no such device
and right after this I get put on the "Main Menu" of the install program
and can not continue from here.
Any ideas why Suse 9.1 installs with no problems but SLES 9 does not?
We are really happy with SuSe 9.1 but we have to switch to SLES 9 in order
to get support from IBM.
The e325 should work without problems with SLES9. What exactly are
you doing? Booting from CD1 and install from CD?
