Can't boot Alpha 4.1 from USB thumb drive on IBM ThinkPad X30
|Reported by:||robertson||Owned by:||mmlr|
I have an IBM ThinkPad X30. r1alpha4 (Alpha 4.1 )and Nightly hrev45770 will not boot off of USB thumb drive. Alpha 3 does.
On the graphical boot screen, the rocket (the last icon) lights up and then the boot hangs with the USB thumb drive's light still flashing. The system still responds to Ctrl-Alt-Del at this point.
If I enable the on screen debug output, the final lines displayed are (this is a typical R1A4.1 output):
est: cpu_type: 4203 vendor 4096 model 107 est:extended_features: 0 PMA: found no free slot to store 64 bytes, waiting Last message repeated 2 times. usb_disk: operation 0x35 failed at the SCSI level usb_disk: request_sense: key: 0x05; asc: 0x20; ascq: 0x00; usb_disk: request_sense: illegal request PMA: found no free slot to store 64 bytes, waiting Last message repeated 15 times. Last message repeated 13 times. Last message repeated 6 times.
At this point, the boot hangs with the USB thumb drive's light still flashing.
The number of
PMA: found no free slot... and
Last message repeated messages varies. Additionally, I once saw
PMA: found no free slot to store 32 bytes, waiting
between the typical 64 byte messages. Also, the same time the 32 byte version of the error appeared, the three
usb_disk: lines were not present (or at least they didn't show up in their usual place at the end of the boot sequence).
