Got my hands on a HP Proliant DL380 G5 (xeon socket 771)
I wanted to try something else the my current Debian11 install.
But i cant get past thise screens
joany Does booting in uniprocessor mode (boot -1 at the bootloader prompt) or without ACPI support (boot -2) work?
boot -2 got stuck on a temeratur sensor issue
boot -1 it its running the installer 😍
joany See if there is a BIOS update for your HW. Try the latest -HEAD kernel too. It might have additional bugfixes/workarounds.
rvp I gave up tryimg to find a new bios.
HPE keeps them in a safe now.
But i went into the bios and disabled MPS Tablemode
And it boots.
running one CPU 🙄
thanks all for valuble input
