Re: [Xen-users] fresh xcp 1.6 & xenserver install fails on first boot (kernel not found).

There is a console option. Will do. iirc I mentioned seeing a message "can't 
find kernel" followed by a "boot:" buried in the gibberish. I posted a picture 

The /boot/extlinux.conf looked ok, and I reinstalled the mbr - changing the mbr 
changes the results - but I'll capture that and post as well. 

And when I un pack the initrd I don't see a file that looks like a megaraid 
driver but I haven't done a thorough search yet. I'd expect to see one though?

Will go back and do a serial capture later today. 

Thanks :)

I think this is a red-herring.  From the description you have given I
don't think you are getting anywhere near the point at which the kernel
would want a driver for the hardware. You are failing at the bootloader
stage to even load the kernel in the first place.

Are you able to get a full log of the boot, gibberish and all, perhaps
using a serial console?

Have you validated the content of /boot/extlinux.conf?
