Re: Could not get into linux server

Looks like there's no kernel under /boot .
Did you edit your /etc/grub.conf file lately or deleted some files under /boot partition.
If you don't have other selections in your boot menu-then try to boot into rescue mode and see if the information that's in grub.conf file is true and also if all files in /boot are in place..

Re: Could not get into linux server

Have you installed a new kernel/deleted some files under /boot /edited the /etc/grub.conf file?
Do you have another option/kernel version to boot into?

Re: Could not get into linux server

Hello Moke,

since it seems you are using SCSI disks and the system can not find any, I would start checking the SCSI subsystem for errors (cabeling, termination, disks (do they spin up?)).

Else you could try to access the system either via your installation disks or a boot-CD distro like Knoppix for further investigation.

Greetings, Martin
