Hardware specific Installation Guide Issues:
Intel Haydes Canyon NUC :
New NUC8 (NUC8i7HVK, these are the dual NIC nucs with a skull on them). When we switched from the 3.10.0-957 kernel to the 3.10.0-1062 kernel in master the system started to hang.
The initial kernel boot was hanging once the initialization has started and the issue seemed like the Framebuffer initialization.
The following message was the last line:
fb: conflicting fb hw usage amdgpudrmfb vs EFI VGA - removing generic driver
After adding "nomodeset" kernel cmdline parameter it seems to have solved the problem for AIO Simplex Installation.
New NUC8 (NUC8i7HVK) with 2 1TB nvme as storage. When we try to Install Release 2.0/3.0/4.0 the installation fails with below error:
Storage Configuration failed: Requested boot drive "/dev/disk/by-path/pci-0000:72:00.0-nvme-1" doesn't exist or cannot be used
The boot drive does exist as manual Installation steps like setting up the "Installation Source" as /dev/nvme0 or /dev/nvme1 did start the installation process.
But Post-Installation Script failed with another error:
Error: Failed to identify rootdisk via pvdisplay
Please replace the 1 TB nvme with 512GB nvme and installation process works fine.
