Hi Pedro,

Can you try booting this ISO and let us know what happens?

Hi Emeric.

The machine has no iLO card, so it can’t be because of it. As far as I can
tell, either ELILO never gets to pass control to the kernel, or the kernel
never gets to output the 1st message.

Well, problem is then likely with iLO card or serial console.
Indeed, I'm daily using a zx6000 workstation for years, being with
Debian for more than a decade, now with Gentoo since Debian has killed
the plug on ia64 in 2013.
I have no problem booting/using it locally (GNOME 3.24 desktop
environment) with kernels 4.9.76 and 4.12.12. Kernels were compiled
either with GCC 4.5.4 (because of a nasty error with GDB that
sometimes segfaults when kernels i compiled with GCC > 4.5) or 6.2.0.

Hi Jason.

That was close – I was really about to send the zx6000 onto the tech

The following is all I get coming out from the console (Serial A, since
zx6000 does not have a management card / iLO). After the initrd line
a good 5 seconds pass. Then the front panel becomes all red and the
modem-style sounds come out. I’ve wondered about the health of both my
and Kernel, but my rx2660 boots fine with the exact the same two.

This is the same wrong behavior with my zx2000 Itanium machine.
I was able to install the latest debian distribution.
I managed to update the kernel by hand but all the other software
gets no update because Debian stops the IA64 support.

The crash happens on a very early stage where no debug message
been produced by the starting process.
