Re: D-I unable to boot on HP ZX6000 itanium workstation
My pb is even before the installation, I'm not able to boot on the
EFI is giving me the following messages :
LOADING "bootable cd"
STARTING "bootable cd"
then the workstation stay stuck and the system led blink red.
the only thing I can do is power off/on the server.
for now I did my install using the linux enablement kit but I will be glad
to test any new version of d-i.
let me know when you need some testing.

The beta4 does not install properly. I would take a first guess in
that the elilo-installer (the last step before reboot) doesn't work.
We are in the process of fixing the ia-64 install problems and the
(soon to be) latest spin of the netinst.iso has my fix for elilo.
There are more patches coming as we fix/add support for the
EFI partition required by the zx6000 firmware. Btw, I am doing
my development/testing on a rx2600. Help is on the way...
