Suse will not boot on HP Proliant ML110 G5 Server


I have updated the Bios on the computer to the latest version (10/25/10). I then installed Suse 12.2 and got the disk to create a new partition table. With everything else I pretty much took the defaults.

When the system tries to boot I get the message:
Error No active partition
Operating System not found

The computer is using a SATA Raid configuration. When I use a Red Hat installation, the system boots correctly.

Thanks in advance

Grub isn't pointing to the correct boot partition, you have to manually edit grub to point to the correct device.

OpenSUSE uses a ton of scripts to set up the system ( rhel is a rather manual setup )
and as such is very susceptible to the bios having the wrong disk listed first

12.2 unlike 12.1 and earlier uses "grub2"

it is likely easier to just reinstall grub and point it to the correct drive
or
change the boot order in the bios

have a reread of the opensuse install docs
http://doc.opensuse.org/documentatio...nsuse-startup/

and reference docs
http://doc.opensuse.org/documentatio...use-reference/
Chap. 9
http://doc.opensuse.org/documentatio.../cha.grub.html
and read "9.6. Troubleshooting"

Is the sata raid a true hardware raid and is it the first bootable device in bios boot order. Some bios's have odd ways to name it. Might be a scsi order device or some other name.

Cool

If I use a logical volume manager, the disk splits into two partitions (boot and the rest) and then Grub2 manages to pick up the correct partition. Without using LVM, even if I set where Grub picks up the boot record it didn't seem to work
