RE: Grub not getting installed after kickstart installation



Are you installing from a local CD, or via Virtual Media over the iLO?

Try removing everything from your %post and make /boot it's own NATIVE
partition, not LVM

Subject: Grub not getting installed after kickstart installation

Hi,

I am trying to make a kickstart CD to install RHEL3 Update 3 on an HP
DL585
server. The install is taking place on disks controlled by internal RAID
controller (HP Smart array 5i). The install seems to work like breeze.
At the
end of installation, there are some issues - 

(1.) All the post install scripts which tries to mount the cd-rom to
copy
files from CD to hardisk are failing. Possibly some silly mistake. Will
be
glad if someone points those out.

(2.) Although the grub was being installed as a part of the install
process,
when trying to boot from hardisk I was just staring at a message -
"Attempting to boot from Hard Disk (C:)". I tried installing grub
through the
post-install section of kickstart but that also showed me just the word:

GRUB

(3.) When I boot from the Cd in rescue mode and try to do a chroot into
/mnt/sysimage for doing grub-install i find that most core-utils
binaries
like ls, rm, cp etc are not installed. While I clearly remember seeing
core-utils being installed during installation and the rpm is present on
Cd
as well as mentioned in the kickstart file. What's happening.

On the other hand if I do a minimum install from first two CDs of RHEL3
Update 3 the system is perfectly bootable and works fine.

Can someone point out what am I doing wrong?

I am attaching my kickstart file for reference.

Cheers.
