CentOS 6.2 kernel can't mount / on Gen8 blade

CentOS 6.2 kernel can't mount / on Gen8 blade



According to information I found on HP web-sites the issue with very smart disk controller had been fixed in 6.1 version of RedHat Linux.

But today when I installed CentOS 6.2 on couple of blades that we recently bought for c7000 enclosure it fails to start with error message: "Can't mount root directory. Sleeping forever". The same OS with the same kickstart file runs fine on G7 blades.

Looks like it is caused by slow reaction of P220i controller: after I switched on debug in kernel in GRUB is boots and mounts properly.
