Re: Ubuntu install on an M600 Blade

Hi dsdonut,

I have heard of this type of thing happening before as a consequence of the driver included with Ubuntu that binds to the SAS 6i/R card. For some reason it takes 30 seconds or so to initialize, so the boot procedure can't complete immediately, but the driver does complete loading and so the root filesystem can be mounted by the time you exit the recovery shell. I don't recall what the workaround was but I am wondering if maybe you can do a kernel update to get a newer driver in there, or if that is even appropriate for your OS version -- what Ubuntu version is installed, by the way?
