[Intrepid] HP DL36xx + Smartarray , no boot after installation

Bug #346001 reported by Stephan Ruegamer on 2009-03-20
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
grub-installer (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: debian-installer

Dear colleagues,

Just tried to install intrepid server flavour via netboot and cd.
Installation works, but after reboot it stops at

"Booting from C:" (which comes from HP bios and now it tries to find a bootloader)

After playing around with the installation (booting into a rescue system from cd), I checked the /boot/grub/menu.lst
everything is fine.

After installing grub via grub install manually and after doing a new installation I can find this in the /var/log/installer/grub-.log file:

       [ Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For
         the first word, TAB lists possible command
         completions. Anywhere else TAB lists the possible
         completions of a device/filename. ]
grub> device (hd0,) /dev/cciss/c0d0

Error 12: Invalid device requested
grub> device (hd0)

Error 15: File not found
grub> root (hd0,)

Error 12: Invalid device requested
grub> setup (hd0)

Error 12: Invalid device requested

For you convinience, i'll attach the complete log files from /var/log/installer:

grub-installer (1.36ubuntu4) jaunty; urgency=low

  * cciss and ida logical drive numbers may go up to 15, not just 9.
  * Only check for the boot partition being on dmraid if the user allowed us
    to activate dmraid, to cope with cases where dmraid is misdetected
    (LP: #346001).
