Boot from CD Fails With "PANIC: did not find any boot partitions!"
|Reported by:||petal||Owned by:||nobody|
When booting from CD on my x86 system, all proceeds as expected through the fifth icon, at which point a kernel panic occurs with the error
PANIC: did not find any boot partitions!
Tested on both R1/beta2 and Nightly hrev54384-x86_gcc2h.
The system is a Compaq Presario 3000 (Model: 3045us) Pentium 4 laptop (an ancient machine, circa 2003; the best remaining online source for some specs is available here: https://www.cnet.com/products/hp-compaq-presario-3045us/specs/).
It is a stock machine, except for the HDD which has been replaced with a generic PATA-to-mSATA board and a 256GiB mSATA drive; and an upgrade to 1GiB of PC3200 RAM. The conversion board board (like many of these conversion boards, I'm told) doas not handle DMA correctly. Booting with IDE DMA disabled did not fix the problem. If it helps to inspire any confidence, this board has worked with other operating systems with IDE DMA disabled.
Various combinations of debugging options (Safe mode, Disable IDE DMA, Disable ACPI, etc.) did not get me any further.
My apologies for the the pic attachments. Even with a USB drive plugged in, no "Display syslog from previous session" or "Save syslog from previous session" message appeared in the debug menu. The attached pics are of the panic message, and the last few screens of the syslog. I would be happy to photograph more and send it along if it would help. (At 640x480, the syslog is about 20 screens long).
