nexenta:release cd boot crashes at kernel start from cd

I am trying to boot the 1.0-b82 core cd.
It crashes at the start of the mini kernel, the trace messages are to short on the screen to capture. Last is filesystem syc/reboot. Must be the in ram filesystem.

I have successfully used the elatte install cd alpha7.
Unfortunately that one does not create a root zfs file system.

I am using a SN18000G motherboard with 4 sata drives and a dvd drive on ide to boot and install.

The boot process does not seem to recognize the cdrom drive as device.
I tried the disk on an other system,
After the hostname message it comes back with a cdrom drive name and something like building devices.
In the machine where the install crashes, it crashes soon after the hostname message. I do not see the cdrom device name.
I have tried an other dvd drive, no difference.
Tried master and slave settings for the ide channel.

Any suggestions?

With yum, does it matter which release you start with? ericcarlson Fedora 1 05-27-2004 02:39 PM > Forums > Other *NIX Forums > Solaris / OpenSolaris
