No bootable media found with SL USB media..[Solved]

Post by linuxfluesterer » Fri Mar 03, 2017 22:54

Hallo guys.
according to my other thread:
viewtopic.php?f=50&t=33605
I seem to face a princible problem before I can reach the stage of displaying the Plasma DE. I have latest experience with SL Daily build as date of 01/03/2017 but I also experienced with Daily builds before (17/02/2017, 24/02/2017, 01/03/2017). I always get the message:

Code: Select all

Could not get boot entry.
** No iSCSI initiattr found
!! Media not found
** No bootable media found
and after a while then the boot procedure stops with:

Code: Select all

Could not find CD to boot, something else needed
Could not find the root block deveice in .
!! Please specify another vvalue or:
!! - press Enter for the same
!! - type"shell" for a shell
!! - type q to skip...
root block device() ::
I tried with different computers with different processors, Core i5 4250, Core i7 4700mq, Core i7 7700t.
I make same experience with all laptops. I also tried to boot with different Kernel parameters.
But I fear, there is a principle problem in install procedures. Can you confirm this behavior?
Any idea to solve this problem?
Thank you in advance.

*** Update ***
It seems, that the USB media was the reason itself. I have worked with 3 sticks of the same type of the same brand. Maybe they are of low quality (I got them as a gift).
Now I took a new, one time only used stick and repeated the procedures with dd copy and the booting my (first) laptop, the Acer Core i5 4250. I got now error messages while booting right into Plasma DE.
At least the boot error messages, this thread here, I will mark as [closed]
Thank you for joining this thread.
