SystemRescueCD booting hangs after probing EDD ...... ok

Postby martyman » 10 Jul 2013, 17:34

Hi.

At the beginning I'd like to interview myself and apologize for my 'not perfect' English ;) I'm writing from Poland (Warsaw). My name is Martin.

I'm trying to boot SystemRescueCD from PXE server installed on my OpenWRT router. PXE server is working fine, because another distributions are booting with success (PartedMagic, DSL, Gparted ...).

The problem is SysRescCD displays 'probing EDD ........... OK' and then hangs. I'm searching at google for 2 days and I can't find what's the problem.

My pxelinux.cfg/default configuration for SysRescCD is:

label systemrescuecd
menu label System ^Rescue CD
kernel systemrescuecd-x86-3.7.0/isolinux/rescue32
append initrd=systemrescuecd-x86-3.7.0/isolinux/initram.igz dodhcp netboot=http://192.168.3.1:81/sysrcd.dat

http:// is working fine: if I write http://192.168.3.1:81/sysrcd.dat in my web browser I can download the file from server.

At all topics at google refering to hangs after 'probing EDD' that I've found the problem wasn't solved.

Could anyone tell me where should I start searching the problem?

Thx :)

Yes, I've tried this. With the same result: kernel and initrd are loading and then everything hangs but without 'probing edd' message.

after the Message the kernel should print his first message.
Is the PC you want to boot compatible with sysrcd? (which CPU?)

check the md5sum of the rescue32. Maybe the file you get from the router is not ok.

I checked md5sum of files and it didn't match. I copied all files from my laptop to the disk connected to my router one more time and it works!

It was so easy... I should copy this files one more time at the beginning :)

Thanks :)
