Hmmm... this might be the solution http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Unrecognized_NIC#Modify_modules_on_core

But we really need more info about what printed to the screen... the complete text of the error would be useful.

Just now I can't replicate the error message because the core won't start... See my other post http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=4761.0

Please advice on how to reset/repair the core

Orbiter #20 is the Core/Hybrids Orbiter... Hmmm... you could try doing a regen all & a reload from Web Admin -> Wizards -> Devices -> Orbiters

You should be able to turn of acpi in your Bios setup

You can add extra kernel parameters for the diskless MDs in /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/<01-MAC-ADDR-OF-MD>, just add them to the "APPEND" line.

Zaerc, i had similar issues trying to network book a HP DV9607US laptop....

so i went to /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/ & changed default like so
Code: [Select]
$ diff default.ORIGINAL default
5,6c5
< APPEND root=/dev/nfs acpi=off vga=normal initrd=default/initrd ramdisk_size=10240 rw ip=all apicpmtimer
<
---
> APPEND root=/dev/nfs vga=normal initrd=default/initrd ramdisk_size=10240 rw ip=all apicpmtimer

so basically just removed acpi=off, since there are no BIOS options relating to acpi & i have the latest bios as far as i know

now, i get as far as... "we announce our self to the CORE"
its says loading diskless.sh
then it says rebooting... & reboots...
i tried a few times to boot the image but it always does these exact same things...

Code: [Select]
:/usr/pluto/diskless/74$ sudo du -hs .
2.5G    .

this leads me to believe that the CORE has finished creating the image.
htop shows nothing much happening on the core...
