Need help in installing Linux on rx2660

Hi,

I got a new HPrx2660. When I tried installing Linux on that machine using SLES10.1 CD it's loading till initrd & after that it's not proceeding after that. Is there some other way to install Linux on integrity servers? Kindly help me in this regard.

Attaching the screen shots of different screens where it got stuck.

Thanks,
Prakash

Re: Need help in installing Linux on rx2660

According to your screenshots the console is on serial line "ttyS1". Now it waits for input ...

What console are you using? VGA?

Go to EFI and run

EFI> conconfig


It should look like

Shell> conconfig

CONSOLE CONFIGURATION

Index Primary Type Device Path
----- ------- ----- ----------
1 P Serial Acpi(HWP0002,PNP0A03,0)/Pci(1|2)
2 NC VGA Acpi(HWP0002,PNP0A03,0)/Pci(3|0)

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Hi Torsten,

Your info was very helpful. Actually in my machine Serial console was configured a primary & VGA as secondary. When I configured VGA as primary display came in VGA. Thanks a lot for your help.
