[Xen-users] 3w-xxxx scsi problem, Xen will not boot


Has anyone experienced any problems trying to install Xen 3.0 on Ubuntu (RAID 10) with the 3ware drivers? I have provided the details below, but any suggestions would be appreciated.



On boot, the 3ware controller fails and the system then can't find / dev/sda2/
It appears that the 3ware RAID drivers aren't working.
However, the kernel has scsi_mod, sd_mod and 3w-xxxx built in.
Note that I have a normal Ubuntu kernel installed that works fine with the 3ware controller. I have tried a number of options in the kernel config to get through this, but no luck so far.

I am using this page as a model: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ XenVirtualMachine/XenOnUbuntuBreezy According to this, you can't do this install without comiling from source.

prior to a reboot, i am doing the following:

make linux-2.6-xen-config
make linux-2.6-xen-build
echo $?
make linux-2.6-xen-install
echo $?
mkinitramfs -o /boot/initrd- /lib/modules/
init 6


this is during the boot process

3w-xxxx: scsi0: Found 3aware storage controller at 0xbc00, IRQ: 72

note: counts from Unit #0-15 then stops. the eventually drops to shell as follows:

Alert! /dev/sda2 does not exist. Dropping to a shell!
