Subject: Redhat 9 XFS 1.2 ISO - wont boot on Dell Poweredge 2500
I have a Dell Poweredge 2500 server that I wish to install Redhat 9 on
I have previously installed Redhat 7.3 on it using the XFS boot CD without
The problem that I am having is that when I boot off the CD I can see the
line beginning with 'ISOLINUX' and then the screen clears and the CDROM
drive looks like it is reading lots of data. I have left this for an hour
but nothing appears on the screen.
If I boot the XFS CD on a different machine it works.
If I boot the original Redhat 9 CD1 on the poweredge 2500 it works.
Any idea how I can get it to work?
I Have 3 SCSI drives (18GB) in the system and I wish to install so that
there are 3 partitions mirrored with the 3rd drive as a hot spare.
1st partition as the main OS with 4GB
2nd partition as a 1GB swap mirror.
3rd partition as a 13GB mirror for data.
