TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library

TurnKey Fileserver can't boot from hard disk

Hi, i'm new to the turnkey appliances and i have an issue thats probably not even related to the appliance but i thought maybe some gurus over here could share some light on this.

I have a server consisting of several physical SCSI hard drive configured with RAID 5. I tried installing the fileserver to the hard disk by either doing a guided format or following the manual procedure and  in both cases I get the following error

isolinux disk error 01 ax 201 drive 80

To my knowledge the RAID shouldn't be a problem as it is considered to be transparent to the underlying operating system. My thoughts is that maybe the GRUB isn't setup properly. I have googled the issue but couldn't find a working solution. If this helps the live cd works and doing an fdisk -l shows the correct partitions.

 

Any help is appreciated.

 

King Regards

You're not booting from hard disk

Isolinux isn't used to boot from the hard drive it's used to boot from the CD. So if I understand you correctly you are having trouble booting from the Live CD you burned. Try putting that CD into another computer and see if it works there. You may have a faulty CD burn on your hands, or a faulty media drive.
