centos 6.3 kickstart 装机卡在 unsupported hardware detected 页面

起因

最近厂里一批 dell 新机器 centos 6.3 装机卡在 Unsupported Hardware Detected 页面,要人肉点击 OK 才能继续装机:

Unsupported Hardware Detected
This hardware (or a combination thereof) is not supported by Red Hat.
For more information on supported hardware, please refer to http://www.redhat.com/hardware.

google 了一下 unsupported hardware 关键词,RHEL 手册提到 kickstart 有个 unsupported_hardware 可选项:

unsupported_hardware (optional)
Tells the installer to suppress the Unsupported Hardware Detected alert.
If this command is not included and unsupported hardware is detected, the installation will stall at this alert.

在 ks 文件中加上这行,结果空欢喜一场,安装程序提示说不认识这个字段。又找了一翻 redhat 6.4 的发行注记说,

从 6.4 开始才新添加 kickstart 的 unsupported_hardware 命令:

BZ#824963
A kickstart installation on unsupported hardware resulted in a dialog box asking for confirmation before proceeding with the installation process. As a consequence, it was not possible to perform a kickstart installation
on unsupported hardware without any user input. To fix this bug, a new unsupported_hardware kickstart command has been added, which skips the interactive dialog warning when installing a system on unsupported hardware without user input.

这批机器要安装的 OS 版本是 centos 6.3 的,没法用到这个新的 ks 选项。上面的官方文档有误导性 -_-#

经过

既然出现这个提示,那就找找是什么触发的警告,卡在这个页面时。按 Alt + F2 进入交互式 console

dmesg|less -i 中搜索 unsupported 关键字,找到下面这段内核报错:

这批 Dell R620 CPU 型号是:Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2620 v2 @ 2.10GHz

内核识别的 CPU family model 是 62 太新了吧,然后就崩了。

结果

上面的报错信息,只能说,软件得跟着硬件一起升级啊

既然 PXE 的引导 kernel 太旧,那就更新一下,用的 centos 6.4 的 pxe 引导文件替换掉 centos 6.3 的:

centos6.4-x86_64/images/pxeboot/vmlinuz
centos6.4-x86_64/images/pxeboot/initrd.img

然后,重新从网络引导,装机就没有出现 CPU family model 的报错,就没有再卡在 unsupported_hardware 处了。
