Proxmox 4 Installation Issue on LSI Raid Systems

I was installing Proxmox 4.X on my new server systems having SAS disk with LSI MPT2 Raid controller. The installation went just perfect, however, after post installation boot- I was getting errors as below similar screenshot-

LSI-2016-01-29 17.57.46

After googling a lot, found the solution. Here goes it-

  1. On the initial boot screen- select “*Advanced…..”
  2. Hit “e” on the next screen
  3. You’ll find something similar as below-
    title Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.26-1-686
    root (hd0,0)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.26-1-686 root=/dev/sda1 ro quiet
    initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.26-1-686
    add rootdelay=90 after quiet
  4. Hit “Ctrl+X” or F10. The boot will initiate and you;ll have the login prompt appears on screen. Success!!!
  5. Now, let’s make it permanent for the next boot.
  6. now open /etc/default/grub and add the following command-
  7. GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet rootdelay=90"
  8. Save it
  9. Now issue the command-
  10. update-grub
  11. Now time to reboot

Problem resolved!!!
