Installation error on Dell Power Edge R430 Server

I tried to install rockstor 3.9.1 & 3.9.0 on dell poweredge r430 server. The installation is stopping with

dracut-initqueue timeout

@CCC Welcome to the Rockstor community.

You could try adding, via the tab option advertised on the first install screen, the following kernel boot option:


from the following report:

and from the following:
it looks like this was fixed in kernel version 3.10.0-327.10.1.el7.x86_64.

Let us know if this kernel boot option works for you, there is mention of the R420 in that last link so hopefully still relevant.

This is only an installer issue as the resulting Rockstor install uses a much newer kernel.

Note that we also have plans to update our iso so hopefully we will inherit the fix then:

Hope that helps.

Push the button F10 when the machine starts. Get into the bios interface, and set the hard drive as the first to boot. And it works! I’m using a HP MicroServer!
