RHEL AS 4 update 4 kernel panics when installing on IBMx3650
I need to install RHEL AS 4 update 4 on IBM x3650.
I get kernel panic oops message after the boot prompt.
Here is the situation:
1)We are on 4.4 and can not change the OS at this point.
2)IBM says they were successful installing 4.3 - which is older - so I assumed that 4.4 will install too.
3)Red hat is not showing this installation in their certified installations
I tried 4.5 and it worked fine. So I am sure that it is a kernel problem.
The box has the latest BIOS and Firmware from IBM.
I tried providing options to the kernel at install time as IBM suggested but none worked.
Any assistance with this problem is appreciated.
