Hi,

i have just installed Proxmox-2.2 on a 8GB USB Stick. The Installation ran without problems, but the System
does not boot:

Loading, please wait
Volume group "pve" not found
Skipping Volume group pve
Unable to find LVM volume pve/root
What is the Problem?

HiTom,

installing on USB is NOT recommended. USB sticks are known to die quite soon.
I know, it is only for Testing.

The Solution is "rootdelay" :)

On Grub Boot Menue Press "e", then add "rootdelay=10"
-> linux /vmlinuz-2.6.32-17-pve root=/dev/mapper/pve-root ro rootdelay=10 quiet

Now it works.
