BOOT_PLAT_CONSOLE_DEV_FAILED ERROR ON RX4640

 

BOOT_PLAT_CONSOLE_DEV_FAILED ERROR ON RX4640

We had a power problem that resulted in system shutdown. We have 2x 4640 clustered systems and one node is ok but the other node is reporting BOOT_PLAT_CONSOLE_DEV_FAILED error.
How can i relove this error? Any assistance would be appreciated.
Thanks.
Eric.

Re: BOOT_PLAT_CONSOLE_DEV_FAILED ERROR ON RX4640

The console device is missing.

I would start from EFI shell:

Shell> conconfig

What do you get?

Hope this helps!

Re: BOOT_PLAT_CONSOLE_DEV_FAILED ERROR ON RX4640

So the OS is starting.


If you stop at EFI shell and type

Shell> conconfig

what do you get?

Shell> conconfig

CONSOLE CONFIGURATION

Index Primary Type Device Path
----- ------- ----- ----------
1 P Serial Acpi(HWP0002,0)/Pci(1|1)
2 S VGA Acpi(HWP0002,0)/Pci(4|0)



The serial must be primary in order to get something via MP.

Hope this helps!
