Errors when installing a golden image using ignite

Hi

We have a rx6600 server image which I'm trying to clone onto a new rx6600 ( recently brought hardware ) server. I have managed to start the ignite installation.. the clonig finishes... and when the server tries to reboot it fails with the following messages

gio: Error configuring root device using EFI hw paths

I've seen some threads on the forum, however since the hardware I'm trying to clone is identical I do not understand why the cloning is complaining.

Thanks in advance for all your advice.

Re: Errors when installing a golden image using ignite

Shalom,

Since the systems are essentially identical, I would rule out a hardware difference causing the problem.

The image itself could be bad. Do you have a different image you can test.

Disk configuration could be different. Is their an opportunity to go into the Ignite interface and modify disk configuration?

Re: Errors when installing a golden image using ignite

We had to rebuild it using the UNIX CDs.
For some reason, the firmware on the machine did not like the ignite image.

Thanks for all your valuable suggestions.
