I'm using Etherboot to load a network boot image I created using wraplinux(1.6-1) on F10.
When the PC is executing the NBI it downloads through TFTP off the server, the kernel starts to load and eventually stops with the message
"mount: error mounting /dev/root on /sysroot as ext3: No such file or directory"
I believe this problem is occuring in the initrd part of the NBI.
the wraplinux command I have been using is
wraplinux -E -p "root=/dev/nfs nfsroot=/raid/nfsroot.ios" -i initrd-22.214.171.124-117.fc10.i686.img -o kernel.ios vmlinuz-126.96.36.199-117.fc10.i686
I'm trying to get the kernel to mount the folder /raid/nfsroot.ios on the server, but it appears the kernel paramaters I have put in have been ignored or not reached.
Judging by other posts I have seen with this error, the error is overcome by running mkinitrd with the option --with=scsi_wait_scan. I have tried this and it hasn't worked.
The only drive I have that may fall under that category is a sata cdrom.
I used FC10 on the client to produce the the NBI
I'm trying to load a second stage boot loader off the server. The server is also running FC10.
Does anyone have any idea or suggestions as to why this case is different? I haven't found anyone else trying to do the same thing with FC10.
