As the title states, I have a problem. This server and the installation disc are also on the other side of the world to me so...
So far, I have tried to start the install with the parameters: linux text noapic noacpi no=apic no=acpi
which results in the same hang. I have also disabled a PCI ethernet adapter, I am uneasy about disabling the onboard ethernet adapter I do not know if ILO uses this.
Anyone have any advice? Much appreciated.
EDIT: full output after trying to begin the installation.
boot: linux text Loading initrd.img.................. Loading vmlinuz....... Uncompressing Linux...done. Now booting the kernel stays on this for hours
EDIT2: adding the 'mem=40960M' (server has 40 gigs of ram) parameter allows it to proceed but the following output directly after 'Now booting the kernal'
