CD with kernel 2.6.23 does not boot

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Hello,

The boot CD of my Gen2VDR Distri does not boot with VB 1.5.2 on a Win2K Host. With vmware and "normal" PC's this iso boots as usual. The behaviour is very strange. VB starts booting from the iso image, but then it tries to boot from root /dev/hda ( which is not available ).

The bootable part is here:  http://www.htpc-forum.de/gen2vdr/2.0/files/tst.iso

The bootup log is attached, tthe strange part is:

00:00:10.090 PIIX3 ATA: LUN#0: no unit

Please tell us the kernel command line you pass to the kernel.

comment:2 Changed 6 years ago by HelAu

Hello, Absolutely great bugtracking system - I do net get an Email when someone answers my post - I do not find my bugs when search for bugs reported by me. Looks like wasted time to report here :( Anyway it happanes with all kernel parameters i tried. All of these are working fine when I boot from harddisk instead of a DVD image. You can take test it with the iso in the link shown above. And please send me an email, when you answer ( helmut attt helmutauer dotttt de ) Bye

P.S. Sorry for the hard words, but it made me sad to see that such a good software product like virtualbox is using a bad bugtracking system ...

I don't agree that the part of the log you quote separately is any special. The config you have should boot from DVD/CD. But the log also clearly shows that you pressed "F12" followed by "2" (selecting a hard disk boot). So in fact the log shows that YOU told the BIOS in the VM not to boot from CD as it would have normally done but from the non-existent hard disk.

So either the log you provided is just accidentally the wrong one which has nothing to do with the problem you have, or you're wasting our time.

Just as a side note to the bugtracking system complaint above: I just double-checked that my response was successfully sent out by our mailserver. If it doesn't reach you we can't do much about it.

Correct Log File :)

comment:7 Changed 6 years ago by HelAu

Hello,
I do not get any mails from virtualbox about changes in this Bug ( maybe there is a typo in my emailadress, but I do not see any profile page where I can check my settings ).
Also when I look for bugs reported by me, I do not find this bug (and I'm sure that I'm logged on) :)
You're right, the log above is the wriong one - sorry for that, please download the iso noticed in my first post( 6 MB ), try to boot from it with virtualbox 1.5.2 Win and you see the problem ( hopefully ;)
Vmware and every PC I tried til now can boot with it - Virtualbox can't.
Here is a screenshot:  http://www.htpc-forum.de/download/vb.gif
And now I attached the correct log :)
Thanks for your assistance.

P.S: After booting the CD Image you have to press enter once ( or wait for 30 seconds ).

comment:9 Changed 6 years ago by HelAu

P.P.S. Instead of enter You can try different kernel parameters with selecting 1-9:

LABEL 1
    KERNEL /isolinux/vmlinuz.2623
    APPEND initrd=instrd.gz video=uvesafb:off root=/dev/ram0 rw ramdisk_size=32000
    
LABEL 2
    KERNEL /isolinux/vmlinuz.2623
    APPEND initrd=instrd.gz ide=nodma video=uvesafb:off root=/dev/ram0 rw devfs=nomount ramdisk_size=32000 acpi=off apm=off nomce noapic

LABEL 3
    KERNEL /isolinux/vmlinuz.2623
    APPEND initrd=instrd.gz video=uvesafb:off root=/dev/ram0 rw ramdisk_size=32000 acpi=off apm=off    
    
LABEL 4
    KERNEL /isolinux/vmlinuz.2623
    APPEND initrd=instrd.gz video=uvesafb:off root=/dev/ram0 rw ramdisk_size=32000  nomce noapic

LABEL 5

    APPEND initrd=instrd.gz video=uvesafb:off root=/dev/ram0 rw ramdisk_size=32000 acpi=off apm=off devfs=nomount    

LABEL 7

    APPEND initrd=instrd.gz video=uvesafb:off root=/dev/ram0 rw ide=nodma ramdisk_size=32000  nomce noapic

Any news on this subject ? Could you reproduce the problem ? I have good news - with kernel 2.6.24 it works fine :) Anyway it would be interesting to know why VirtualBox fails when booting kernel 2.6.23 from CD.

oh, and one more thing: here's a link to what i think is the relevant bug in the ubuntu launchpad :  https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/246067

comment:15 Changed 6 years ago by frank

Is this bug still relevant?

comment:16 Changed 6 years ago by HelAu

Is this bug still relevant?

Sure its relevant - I am not able to boot from a linux boot CD with kernel 2.6.23

comment:17 Changed 6 years ago by frank

Which was the last version of VBox you checked?

comment:18 Changed 6 years ago by HelAu

Hi,

You're right 2.0.0 fixed this problem. I saw nothing in the Changelog so I didn't give it a try. Thanks for your support !
