Re: Debian Install Hangs

If I use 'expert nohz=off' I do not get it to hang on hyper threading. However I get a kernal panic with CPU 0: machine check exception: 4 bank 4: b20000100010c0f
TSC 43b9780a78

I am using a net install image.

Unfortunately that did not work and I cannot get it past that point.

I am currently trying to install debian on a new server that uses a
supermicro mother board and it hangs at:

      pci 0000:00:00.0: Enabling HT MSI Mapping

Any ideas as how to get around this.
Google suggests passing "noapic" to the kernel at boot time. It can be
worth a try :-?

What Debian version are you installing... lenny, squeeze?
I have tried using "noapic" at boot time but it still hangs at Hyper
Also I am installing lenny.
I don't like workarounds like this, but... how about disabling HT in 
BIOS? Supermicro boards use to have a "enable/disable" switch for that 
setting. If the installation can proceed normally, then you can toggle on 
again when it finishes.

If you prefer to be more conservative (like me) you can also try to load 
a LiveCD of Lenny and see what happens.

Also, check if there is an updated BIOS revision for your board. If yes, 
I would ask Supermicro to get some feedback before applying it, but it 
could be another path to try :-?
