The server I have is using an Intel SE7501CW2 server board with 1 Xeon
2.0Ghz processor. It's got a Mylex AcceleRAID 170 card with 6 - 36GB
scsi drives. When I reboot the machine, via ctrl-alt-del, or typing
reboot, it syncs disks, then gives the messages:
All buffers synced.
At this point, it just hangs forever and has to be powercycled. I've
tried installing 4.11, 5.4 and 6.0 on this box. The only version that
works properly is 4.11, however, at this point I would prefer to not put
another 4.x box in production. I have tried booting in safe mode and
rebooting and I get the same result. I've tried disabling usb in the
bios, in the kernel, and in both, and it still has the same results.
Any ideas what could fix this?
