Requesting help

Hi,

I recently downloaded XCP 1.0.0 and installed it in one of my external hard drives. Now, when I tried to load the installed XCP (Immediately after installation), it's not loading. The system is booted up to the "Boot:" prompt and loads to a white show bear (with a hap and a stick) picture and hangs my system. Caps lock key and the hard disk light is flashing.

Please help me to solve the problem.

Thanks
Ramesh

Re: Requesting help [In reply to]

try to use fallback or safe option in boot menu (it shown as dark blue
on black before boot) to see what happens.

My guess: using an external drive is simply not supported.

Re: Requesting help [In reply to]

I didn't get a boot menu either. I got a boot prompt (CLI) with the test "Boot:". I tried 'help', 'verbose' and lot more, but unfortunately nothing worked. Could you please explain a bit how to turn on the verbose mode or safe mode turn on?

Thanks
Ramesh

Re: Requesting help [In reply to]

Yes, and here you shall print noted below commands.

Do you expect nice menu with helpers? Use hyper-v and be microsoft's slave.

Re: Requesting help [In reply to]

Thanks for your quick response.
I believe I haven't made my point clear.

* I am not getting a menu at boot time (no choices)
* what ever I typed there on the prompt, it says kernel not found or invalid kernel.

I am pretty confused how to activate the safe option.

Also, I tried to load the kernel by typing the following,

/boot/xen.gz

and, it shows me an error like 'Kernel Corrupted"

I also started believing external drive may not be supported.

Re: Requesting help [In reply to]

I figured out something, that fallback worked for me and I found the problem is a 'Kernel Panic'
see the errors below

switchroot : mount failed: No such file or directory
Kernel Panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill Init!

I think boot from external drive is not supported. I there any solution for this like loading a driver or something...

Thanks George Shuklin for your help, and much appreciated...

Re: Requesting help [In reply to]

If 'safe' does not work, that means installation went wrong. Boot from
other media and check content of /boot. And try to install not to
USB/eSATA drive but to normal SATA/SAS/ATA drive.

OK, we got very clear answer: do not install on removable drives.
Simple, isn't it?

Re: Requesting help [In reply to]

Now I am facing another issue with the realtek network card. Instead of r8168 driver, linux automatically detects r8169 driver.

Please help me if anybody solved this issue.

I have seen a lot of threads discussing the same issue when searched in google. Also, I managed to download and copy the source of the driver 8168 to the machine, but was not able to make it as build-essentials are missing (I am not having an internet connection to the machine as my lan is not working).

Thanks
Ramesh

OK, we got very clear answer: do not install on removable drives. Simple, isn't it?

Thanks for your quick response.
I believe I haven't made my point clear.

* I am not getting a menu at boot time (no choices)
* what ever I typed there on the prompt, it says kernel not found or invalid kernel.

I am pretty confused how to activate the safe option.

Also, I tried to load the kernel by typing the following,

/boot/xen.gz

and, it shows me an error like 'Kernel Corrupted"

I also started believing external drive may not be supported.

Yes, and here you shall print noted below commands.

Do you expect nice menu with helpers? Use hyper-v and be microsoft's slave.

I didn't get a boot menu either. I got a boot prompt (CLI) with the test "Boot:". I tried 'help', 'verbose' and lot more, but unfortunately nothing worked. Could you please explain a bit how to turn on the verbose mode or safe mode turn on?

Thanks

try to use fallback or safe option in boot menu (it shown as dark blue on black before boot) to see what happens.

My guess: using an external drive is simply not supported.

Hi,

I recently downloaded XCP 1.0.0 and installed it in one of my external hard drives. Now, when I tried to load the installed XCP (Immediately after installation), it's not loading. The system is booted up to the "Boot:" prompt and loads to a white show bear (with a hap and a stick) picture and hangs my system. Caps lock key and the hard disk light is flashing.

Please help me to solve the problem.

Thanks
Ramesh

Re: Requesting help [In reply to]

After a lot of search and experiments, I solved the problem.

I have added the following line to the file /etc/modprobe.conf

options r8169 use_dac=1

Now I am facing another issue with the realtek network card. Instead of r8168 driver, linux automatically detects r8169 driver.

Please help me if anybody solved this issue.

I have seen a lot of threads discussing the same issue when searched in google. Also, I managed to download and copy the source of the driver 8168 to the machine, but was not able to make it as build-essentials are missing (I am not having an internet connection to the machine as my lan is not working).

Thanks
Ramesh

I am really glad to say that XCP is up and running from an external drive.
