#443 Boot from ISO stuck at Reached target Basic System
Opened 2 years ago by rares. Modified 2 years ago

I got Fedora-Atomic-ostree-x86_64-27-20180314.0.iso on a USB stick. When booting from USB on a bare-metal Z800 Workstation, I get as far as:

...
[ OK ] Reached target paths.
[ OK ] Reached target Basic System.
_

Than it get stack there forever.

On the same hardware, I was able to boot and install previous versions of the ISO.


hi. Thanks for the report!

Can you answer a few questions?

  • How did you place the Fedora-Atomic-ostree-x86_64-27-20180314.0.iso onto the USB stick?
  • What were the previous versions that worked for you?
  • Do you know if your system is using EFI or booting using legacy mode?

To answer you questions:

  • dd bs=4M if=Fedora-Atomic-ostree-x86_64-27-20180314.0.iso of=/dev/sdb
  • Actually, after checking it, the one that worked was CentOS-Atomic-Host-7-Installer.iso, downloaded on 11/3/2017
  • I believe it is legacy. There is no option to disable EFI, so that makes me think there is no EFI

A few more notes:

  • The workstation has LSI MPT SAS BIOS, but the adapter is disabled from its BIOS configuration utility
  • Regarding the BIOS storage settings, I tried SATA Emulation:
    • IDE
    • RAID+AHCI with GEN1/1.5Gbps and GEN2/3.0Gbps
  • I also pulled the HDDs out and tried to boot without them on
  • When it starts up there are a few (probably unrelated errors) like:
    • ACPI Error: [CAPD] Namespace lookup failure...
    • ACPI Error: Method parse/execution failed...
    • dracut-pre-udev[618]: rpc.idmapd: conf_reinit: oone ... failed

I think I found the cause and a workaround. If I go to Troubleshooting in the boot menu and select Install ... in basic graphics mode, it moves past that step and successfully loads the installer.

CentOS Atomic also has the same problem, it just gets stuck at a different step.

odd. so do we think this is a graphics driver issue?
