RE: Grub not getting installed after kickstart installation



Ok, so this installed ONCE?

 

I have run into this issue with the DL servers (and the CCISS controller). 

 

This happens when you have previously setup disks using LVM on a cciss controller.  If you delete and recreate the partitions in the CCISS Controller ROM BIOS setup, it will work again, one more time (that’s how I originally figured it out).

 

OR, add –initlabel to your clearpart command in the kickstart file:

 

clearpart --all –initlabel

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

I am installing from a local CD.

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


/boot is primary partition and not a part of LVM (check the ks file posted with the original post). Also I added those %post commands later, it was not working anyway so I thought I will try installing Grub through %post.

Installation always went smooth but when I try to boot from the hard disk, nothing is coming up. So it looks like a problem with grub getting installed on the MBR.

Cheers.
