Issue Description

CH140V3 server, when installing the SUSE11 sp3, it is successful, however, after installation, when try to enter the OS, it report "boot partition not found"

Alarm Information
Boot partition not found.
Handling Process

1, from the message, when server is starting, it can't find the boot partition.

2, when server is staring, it will try to find the sda and sdb, however, for this server, the sda and sdb was assigned to the Micro SD port in the motherboard.

3, The Micro sd port is port 9 and port 10 in BIOS, so we just need disable the two port in BIOS

 

Root Cause

The sda and sdb is being used for the micro sd port (port 9 and port 10), so the system can't find the boot partition.

Solution

disable the port 9 and port 10 in BIOS

Suggestions
This problem could happen on different server, like CH242 V3, CH140 V3.  and also for different OS.  when we meet this kind of issue, we can try to disable the port9 and port 10 first if we are sure the port 9 and port 10 (micro SD card port on motherboard)is not being used.
