Hi, I have a problem where my nice new HP Proliant Microserver will not boot from a known working openSUSE 11.3 Gnome live USB stick.
It shows the first menu screen and I select openSUSE Live (GNOME). After a few minutes the following pops up and it eventually reboots, and the cycle recommences.
[0.0950385] pci_root PNP0A08:00: address space collision: host bridge window [mem 0x000d0000-0x0000dfff] conflict with Adapter ROM [mem0x000cf000-0x000d19ff]
[2.688995] i8042.c: No controller found
This Live USB stick boots fine in my desktop pc. I have created a LiveCD from the same .iso and this boots fine on the HP Proliant Microserver using an external USB CD drive.
Google shows this error has occured on Red Hat and others but not specifically this hardware, and I haven’t found a solution.
I was hoping to build an openSuse appliance which would boot from a USB stick.
Try using a different USB port, particularly if you have more than one USB adapter installed.
It might not help, but it is worth the try.
The microserver has a specific internal motherboard mounted usb port for os/s. I have tried one of the “normal” external usb ports, it’s the same.
I have spoken with HP Support and they checked through the bios settings with me. They also said Ubuntu 10-10 worked. This I tried and it does work in the “try it” mode…
So it’s definetly an openSUSE problem. Anyone know how to compare how Ubuntu does it to how openSUSE does it, and then make the necessary changes?
I really want to use openSUSE …
Just tried it with openSUSE RC 12 openSUSE-GNOME-LiveCD-Build0379-x86_64 it’s the same. It boots fine on my PC (Compaq DC7700) but crashes out on the HP Proliant Microserver.
I can’t use Ubuntu as I need iFolder client…>:(
Hmm… I’ve been wanting to put one of these in my Xmas wish list, and have seen some reviews.
A reviewer in HP’s site posted here that he was running it on oS 11.4.
Somewhere else I’ve seen a comment that the user run it from an internal (!?) pen drive, whatever it means. So perhaps is there a USB header inside that you could try and see if the conflict still happens.
Also (and sorry if this sounds basic) is there any BIOS settings related to USB or ACPI that might influence this, like the USB legacy options in motherboards?
FWIW (not much) this poster here read as having used 11.2 successfully in a Proliant server (probably not the same model as yours).
To clarify, yes the server has a special on motherboard internal usb for usb stick/pen drives. It’s within the lockable case i.e. not an external usb socket ( there are 4 at the front and 2 at the rear).
It doesn’t seem to operate any differently from the other usb sockets.
If I use an external usb cd/dvd drive with an openSUSE LiveCD it boots & runs just fine…
If I create a usbstick/pen drive from the same .iso as the LiveCD I get the boot failure described (12.1 RC has different messages)
If I create a usbstick/pen drive from Ubuntu 10-10 and select “try it” from their menu it runs happily.
I have a 5 or 6 of these and they run openSUSE 11.3 & 11.4 without issue, but they have normal installations to a hard disk, they are dual boot with Openfiler.
It’s running openSUSE LIVE from a USB memory stick/pendrive that is not working.
My plan was to run openSUSE from a memory stick/pendrive and Openfiler running from the hard disk…
I can’t understand why Ubuntu 10-10 works fine but openSUSE doesn’t - is this classed as a bug?
As it exists in 12.1 RC, is it important enough to be looked into?
I am not sure if this will help.

Well, except for a specific bios setting that might be causing the trouble I have no other ideas, although it do seem to be an opensuse-related problem.
As a workaround I suppose you could install oS to the HD in dual boot as you have in your other servers, or perhaps switch Openfiler to the pen drive.
This seem like material for a bug report.
This failure exists in:-
openSUSE 11.3 Live
openSUSE 11.4 Live
openSUSE 12.1 RC
So it’s clearly either a problem that is unknown to the development team or deemed to be unimportant. I do hope it is the former.
I guess members of the development team do not trawl these forums for problems/issues so I presume the correct place to log the problem is by a bug report. I also presume someone filters these for duplicates and “non-bug” issues. I am wondering how you find out if a bug that is logged is being dealt with. I am on a target date for my project and some progress on solving this issue is paramount. Could this be a a fundamental weakness in the “opensource model”?
I would like to withdraw my last comment. I have just read the Faq on creating a bug report, and, I hope, correctly created one. There seems to be a comprehensive reporting system. I’ve entered it for openSUSE 11.3, it also seems to exist in RC 12.1 & 11.4. Will this get picked up from the text or should I create copy under 11.4 & 12.1 RC ?
I’ve just tried the 12.1 release LiveCD (Gnome 64 bit) using the usb stick. It boots!!!
Hurrahh!! (12.1 looks very nice as well!)
