RE: Debian installer

Thanks Jason!

I am now updated on the ELILO front.

Starting: Debian
ELILO v3.14 for EFI/IA-64
Uncompressing Linux... done
Loading file \EFI\debian\initrd.img...done
[    0.000000] Initializing cgroup subsys cpuset
[    0.000000] Initializing cgroup subsys cpu
[    0.000000] Linux version 3.2.0-4-mckinley (debian-kernel@lists.debian.org) (gcc version 4.6.3 (Debian 4.6.3-14) ) #1 SMP Debian 3.2.78-1

Now onto trying new kernels… that’ll be interesting.

Hi Pedro,

I'm using 3.14-2 (from wheezy).

Hi Jason.
Can you please share which ELILO you are using? This is the one I have on my Montvale machine:
        ELILO v3.12 for EFI/IA-64
But I afraid it might be too old for current kernels.

BTW, this is what I currently have on mine:

       Linux b777 3.2.0-4-mckinley #1 SMP Debian 3.2.78-1 ia64 GNU/Linux

I'm currently using elilo, but grub is rumored to work.  Now that the kernel works again, I will try to test grub myself at some point soon.

Cool, will give it a try soon.

Any idea what was changed to make it work? Kernel config maybe?

And say, what machine and what boot loader and boot method (e.g. 
netboot, boot from disk, etc.) did you use?
