64 Studio 3.0 Alpha - Happy New Year release
I've tried to install the 3.0 alpha release on my Medion Akoya (amd64 phenom x3) .
The disk before install:
sda1: ntfs windows boot flag
sda2: ext3 ubuntustudio-8.04 / << I installed here
sda4: ext3 ubuntustudio-8.10 /
* sda5: linux-swap
scd0 : /media/cdrom
For RAID mode in my BIOS, I choose AHCI . (can also choose IDE, RAID, IDE>AHCI)
During install I got messages :
"no installable kernel was found in the defined APT sources"
"create a symbolic link to the current image ? (vmlinuz)" >> yes
"you're attempting to install an initrd kernel image 2.6.21-1-multimedia-amd64 ... should set DO_INITRD = yes in IMG CONFIG ... want to abort now ? >> No
PCI: BIOS BUG: MCFG area at e0000000 is not E820-reserved (I found this explanation about it but not sure if this check should be removed from the amd64 install CD?)
PCI: Not using MMCONFIG
GRUB installed fine and recognized the other OS's..
Now when I boot into 64studio I get the PCI : BIOS bug meesage again, then it takes about a minute before it continues with ..
ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/dfb7bcb4-95etc does not exist.
dropping into a initramfs shell and also the check bootarg cat /proc/cmdline advice.
When I do ls /dev/ there, I see a sda and sda1 but no sda2 or sda4.
Should I add rootdelay=90 to /boot/grub/menu.lst so the SATA controller gets time to start ?
I hope it helps to discover something...
