I have a Dell T7610:
Dual Intel Xeon E5-2630 (Six Core HT)
32 GB (4x8GB) 1666MHz DDR3 ECC RDIMM
2 x 500 GB SATA hard drive
2 x 320 GB SATA hard drive
2 GB NVDIA Quadro K2000
and I did a new install of 13.1 from DVD. I installed the Xen hypervisor along with the default kernel. I configured this as a UEFI unsecured boot.
The system will boot the default kernel just fine, but it won’t boot the xen kernel and freezes immediately in grub after printing:
Loading Xen 4.3.2_01-18.2 …
WARNING: no console will be available to OS
Loading Linux 3.11.10-17-xen …
Loading initial ramdisk …
The disks are configured such that a partition from each make up a RAID6 array with LVM on top. The LVM then has a root, swap, var and tmp with ext4 file systems.
I have some Dell T7600s that have nearly the same configuration and they boot fine (the main OS related difference is they have a RAID5 array instead of RAID6).
I also did an install on another T7610, but used BTRFS and that froze exactly the same way. I attributed that to BTRFS and assumed it was just too new and that’s why it didn’t work, but now with this second system failing exactly the same way I’m thinking it has something to do with the hardware not being supported.
Is there anyway to get debug information to help determine why it freezes? Or is this known to be an unsupported configuration?
