I am trying to install CentOS 7.2 on a ppc64le machine. I downloaded the iso from the CentOS site used the
dd command to make a bootable USB.
When selecting the install option from the boot menu I get lots of dracut timeouts:
[ 197.747052] dracut-initqueue: Warning: dracut-initqueue timeout - starting timeout scripts
and then it drops to a dracut shell:
[FAILED] Failed to start Switch Root. See 'systemctl status initrd-switch-root.service' for details. Warning: /dev/root does not exist Generating "/run/initramfs/rdsosreport.txt" Entering emergency mode. Exit the shell to continue. Type "journalctl" to view system logs. You might want to save "/run/initramfs/rdsosreport.txt" to a USB stick or /boot after mounting them and attach it to a bug report.
I have tried the Minimal install, Full install and Net install isos and they all give me the same error.
